The version of Samba currently included in VL 5.9, VL 5.9.1, and VL 6.0 has a security vulnerability which may allow rogue clients to read from uninitialized memory.  Please see:

http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-4314
http://www.slackware.com/security/viewer.php?l=slackware-security&y=2008&m=slackware-security.453684

The new package fixes this problem. 

UPDATE: New VL 5.9 and VL 6.0 packages are in the respective patches repositories for each release.  Anyone running VL 5.9 or anyone running VL 6.0 release candidate 1.8 or earlier as well as any of the alpha or beta build is advised to upgrade.  VL 6.0 rc2 already has the current version.
