    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Samba, a SMB/CIFS file,
    print, and login server for Unix. The Common Vulnerabilities and
    Exposures project identifies the following issues:
    
    CVE-2018-10858
    
        Svyatoslav Phirsov discovered that insufficient input validation in
        libsmbclient allowed a malicious Samba server to write to the
        client's heap memory.
    
    CVE-2018-10919
    
        Phillip Kuhrt discovered that Samba when acting as an Active Domain
        controller disclosed some sensitive attributes.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2:4.5.12+dfsg-2+deb9u3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your samba packages.
