New Samba packages are avaliable

Updated Samba packages that fix a potential unathorized access problem
are now avaliable.

Under some circumstances, Samba 3.0.0 and 3.0.1 could overwrite the
password field of a disabled account with uninitialized memory.  If an
attacker could know what will be in that memory, he could gain access
to the disabled acocunt.

If you use Samba, you should consider upgrading to these new packages.

Fedora Update Notification

Name        : samba
Version     : 3.0.2                      
Release     : 7.FC1                  
Summary     : The Samba SMB server.
Description :
Samba is the protocol by which a lot of PC-related machines share
files, printers, and other information (such as lists of available
files and printers). The Windows NT, OS/2, and Linux operating systems
support this natively, and add-on packages can enable the same thing
for DOS, Windows, VMS, UNIX of all kinds, MVS, and more. This package
provides an SMB server that can be used to provide network services to
SMB (sometimes called "Lan Manager") clients. Samba uses NetBIOS over
TCP/IP (NetBT) protocols and does NOT need the NetBEUI (Microsoft Raw
NetBIOS frame) protocol.
