Samba 3.5.5 Available for Download

                   Release Notes for Samba 3.5.5
			 September 14, 2010

This is a security release 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.
