package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
Samba is an open-source implementation of the Server Message Block (SMB) or
Common Internet File System (CIFS) protocol, which allows PC-compatible
machines to share files, printers, and other information.

It was discovered that the Samba Web Administration Tool (SWAT) did not
protect against being opened in a web page frame. A remote attacker could
possibly use this flaw to conduct a clickjacking attack against SWAT users
or users with an active SWAT session. (CVE-2013-0213)

A flaw was found in the Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) protection
mechanism implemented in SWAT. An attacker with the knowledge of a victim's
password could use this flaw to bypass CSRF protections and conduct a CSRF
attack against the victim SWAT user. (CVE-2013-0214)

An integer overflow flaw was found in the way Samba handled an Extended
Attribute (EA) list provided by a client. A malicious client could send a
specially crafted EA list that triggered an overflow, causing the server to
loop and reprocess the list using an excessive amount of memory.

Note: This issue did not affect the default configuration of the Samba
