Description Daniel Roesen 2001-04-18 03:59:15 EDT
From http://de.samba.org/samba/samba.html:

(17th April 2001) Samba 2.0.8 released - SECURITY FIX

Samba 2.0.8 has been released. This release fixes a
locally exploitable security hole in Samba 2.0.7 that
allows a user with a shell account to corrupt local
devices (such as raw disks). Samba 2.2.0 includes all the
security fixes as well, so only install 2.0.8 if you do not
wish to upgrade to 2.2.x just yet.
