Red Hat: Updated samba packages fix one security issue

Samba is a suite of programs used by machines to share files, printers, and other information. An input validation flaw was found in the way Samba handled Any Batched (AndX) requests. A remote, unauthenticated attacker could send a specially-crafted SMB packet to the Samba server, possibly resulting in arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the Samba server (root). Updated packages are available from ftp.redhat.com.
