Thanks for filing this bug in Ubuntu.

We sync the samba package from Debian and try to keep our delta as small as possible.

There is an MP[1] up to upgrade the Ubuntu package to 4.6.5, bringing it on par with current Debian unstable.

If Debian updates its package to 4.6.7 before Artful's feature freeze[2], we can probably sync it one more time.

2. Feature Freeze is August 24th, 2017

This bug was fixed in the package samba - 2:4.6.7+dfsg-1ubuntu1

samba (2:4.6.7+dfsg-1ubuntu1) artful; urgency=medium

  * Merge with Debian unstable (LP: #1710281).
    - Upstream version 4.6.7 fixes the CVE-2017-2619 regression with non-wide
      symlinks to directories (LP: #1701073)
  * Remaining changes:
    - debian/VERSION.patch: Update vendor string to "Ubuntu".
    - debian/smb.conf;
      + Add "(Samba, Ubuntu)" to server string.
      + Comment out the default [homes] share, and add a comment about
        "valid users = %s" to show users how to restrict access to
        \\server\username to only username.
    - debian/samba-common.config:
      + Do not change priority to high if dhclient3 is installed.
    - Add apport hook:
      + Created debian/
      + debian/rules, debian/samba-common-bin.install: install hook.
    - Add extra DEP8 tests to samba (LP #1696823):
      + d/t/control: enable the new DEP8 tests
      + d/t/smbclient-anonymous-share-list: list available shares anonymously
      + d/t/smbclient-authenticated-share-list: list available shares using
        an authenticated connection
      + d/t/smbclient-share-access: create a share and download a file from it
      + d/t/cifs-share-access: access a file in a share using cifs
    - Ask the user if we can run testparm against the config file. If yes,
      include its stderr and exit status in the bug report. Otherwise, only
      include the exit status. (LP #1694334)
    - If systemctl is available, use it to query the status of the smbd
      service before trying to reload it. Otherwise, keep the same check
      as before and reload the service based on the existence of the
      initscript. (LP #1579597)
    - d/rules: Compile winbindd/winbindd statically.
    - Disable glusterfs support because it's not in main.
      MIR bug is
