Security database references:
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2018-1050, CVE-2018-1057.
More information:

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Samba, a SMB/CIFS file, print, and login server for Unix. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following issues:

For the oldstable distribution (jessie), CVE-2018-1050 will be addressed in a later update. Unfortunately the changes required to fix CVE-2018-1057 for Debian oldstable are too invasive to be backported. Users using Samba as an AD-compatible domain controller are encouraged to apply the workaround described in the Samba wiki and upgrade to Debian stretch.

For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 2:4.5.12+dfsg-2+deb9u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your samba packages.
