[SECURITY] Debian not affected by samba problems

There have been reports that some Linux distributions are affected by
a vulnerability in samba. There are two issues:
  * the wsmbconf program (which is still a prototype application not
    meant for general release) is unsafe. Debian does not distribute this
  * some distributions used a world-writable directory without a t bit.
    We use /var/tmp which does not suffer from this problem.

There is no need to upgrade your samba package.
