This update adds support for NTLM authentication. In conjunction
with a previous samba update, this allows the use of encrypted
authentication between the client browser and the proxy server if the
browser supports NTLM (Internet Explorer and Mozilla 1.6 or higher at
this time) and if the proxy machine is a member of an NT domain.
This update provides new samba packages which were compiled with the
--with-winbind-auth-challenge option. This option enables NTLM

If the source code leak exposes new security weaknesses, it could again test the relations between Microsoft and the security research community. In recent years Microsoft has gained improved cooperation in keeping security holes under wraps until a patch is available. If security professionals believe Microsoft is unwilling or unable to respond promptly to reported vulnerabilities, they're more likely to publish information about exploits; a scenario played out in December when an spoofing bug in Internet Explorer was published. It took Microsoft six weeks to publish a fix, leaving IE users more susceptible to bank card Phishing scams in the interim.
