                   Release Notes for Samba 4.7.3
                         November 21, 2017

This is a security release in order to address the following defects:

o  CVE-2017-14746 (Use-after-free vulnerability.)
o  CVE-2017-15275 (Server heap memory information leak.)


o  CVE-2017-14746:
   All versions of Samba from 4.0.0 onwards are vulnerable to a use after
   free vulnerability, where a malicious SMB1 request can be used to
   control the contents of heap memory via a deallocated heap pointer. It
   is possible this may be used to compromise the SMB server.

o  CVE-2017-15275:
   All versions of Samba from 3.6.0 onwards are vulnerable to a heap
   memory information leak, where server allocated heap memory may be
   returned to the client without being cleared.

   There is no known vulnerability associated with this error, but
   uncleared heap memory may contain previously used data that may help
   an attacker compromise the server via other methods. Uncleared heap
   memory may potentially contain password hashes or other high-value

For more details and workarounds, please see the security advisories:
