    Package        : samba
    CVE ID         : CVE-2019-3880
    
    Michael Hanselmann discovered that Samba, a SMB/CIFS file, print, and
    login server for Unix, was vulnerable to a symlink traversal
    attack. It would allow remote authenticated users with write
    permission to either write or detect files outside of Samba shares.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2:4.5.16+dfsg-1+deb9u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your samba packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of samba please refer to
    its security tracker page at:
