Patches are applied to the souece code and are only applicable if you
have built your copy of samba from source. The available patch is ment
to patch Samba 3.6.24 but in fact will work with 3.6.23.

But, Samba 3.6.23 has several other security issues. Upgrading to
Samba 3.6.25 might be the better option.

If you have not built Samba from source and do not want to try doing that
now, you should try to find a pre-built Samba 3.6.25. No configuration
changes should be necessary.
