pkgsrc/net/samba35: Makefile distinfo
Update samba35 pacakge to 3.5.7.
Samba 3.5.7, 3.4.12 and 3.3.15 are security releases in order to
All current released versions of Samba are vulnerable to
a denial of service caused by memory corruption. Range
checks on file descriptors being used in the FD_SET macro
were not present allowing stack corruption. This can cause
the Samba code to crash or to loop attempting to select
on a bad file descriptor set.
A connection to a file share, or a local account is needed
to exploit this problem, either authenticated or unauthenticated
Currently we do not believe this flaw is exploitable
beyond a crash or causing the code to loop, but on the
advice of our security reviewers we are releasing fixes
in case an exploit is discovered at a later date.
