Details:

Svyatoslav Phirsov discovered that the Samba libsmbclient library
incorrectly handled extra long filenames. A malicious server could use this
issue to cause Samba to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or
possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2018-10858)

Volker Mauel discovered that Samba incorrectly handled database output.
When used as an Active Directory Domain Controller, a remote authenticated
attacker could use this issue to cause Samba to crash, resulting in a
denial of service. This issue only affected Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.
