Release Announcements
=====================

These are a security releases in order to address CVE-2010-3069.

o CVE-2010-3069:
All current released versions of Samba are vulnerable to
a buffer overrun vulnerability. The sid_parse() function
(and related dom_sid_parse() function in the source4 code)
do not correctly check their input lengths when reading a
binary representation of a Windows SID (Security ID). This
allows a malicious client to send a sid that can overflow
the stack variable that is being used to store the SID in the
Samba smbd server.
