A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 19.10 - Ubuntu 19.04 - Ubuntu 18.04 LTS - Ubuntu 16.04 LTS


Several security issues were fixed in Samba.

Software Description: - samba: SMB/CIFS file, print, and login server for Unix


Andreas Oster discovered that the Samba DNS management server incorrectly handled certain records. An authenticated attacker could possibly use this issue to crash Samba, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2019-14861)
