Yes and no.  It isn't that I know of any specific Samba problems right
now (if I did, I would get in touch with the maintainers and make sure
they got fixed immediately).  It is just that Samba is a large and
complex piece of software, with many opportunities for security bugs. 
There have been security bugs in Samba before, and I would be very
surprised if more such holes were not found in the future.
