    Package        : samba
    CVE ID         : CVE-2019-10197
    
    Stefan Metzmacher discovered a flaw in Samba, a SMB/CIFS file, print,
    and login server for Unix. Specific combinations of parameters and
    permissions can allow user to escape from the share path definition and
    see the complete '/' filesystem. Unix permission checks in the kernel
    are still enforced.
    
    Details can be found in the upstream advisory at
    https://www.samba.org/samba/security/CVE-2019-10197.html
    
    For the stable distribution (buster), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2:4.9.5+dfsg-5+deb10u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your samba packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of samba please refer to its security
    tracker page at:
