More information:

Michael Hanselmann discovered that Samba, a SMB/CIFS file, print, and login server for Unix, was vulnerable to a symlink traversal attack. It would allow remote authenticated users with write permission to either write or detect files outside of Samba shares.

For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in version 2:4.5.16+dfsg-1+deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your samba packages.
