Advisory number:        CSSA-2001-018.0

1. Problem Description

   The previous Samba update fixed several places within the
   samba server code that allowed local attackers to gain root
   access.

   Unfortunately the patch used was slightly incorrect and did not
   fix the problem completely.

   The Samba 2.0.9 release fixes this problem, this security
   update backports it to our released Samba packages.
