You might have read the news this morning about a wormable code-execution bug discovered in the Samba free software re-implementation of the SMB/CIFS networking protocol, which existed in Samba for more than 7 years.

The Samba team managed to quickly patch the critical vulnerability that was discovered to affect over a hundred thousand Linux and UNIX machines running Samba, which is usually used to provide file and printing sharing services, allowing users to connect to Windows shares on a network.

The Samba 4.6.4, 4.5.10 and 4.4.14 patched versions have been released, and are available for download from the official website or via ours if you want to compile it on your GNU/Linux distribution. Canonical already patched Samba in all supported Ubuntu releases, and other GNU/Linux distributions will soon receive the patch.
