Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2020-06-22 05:12:16 UTC
As per upstream advisory:

Samba 4.5 and later implements VLV - Virtual List View, and Samba 4.10 and later reimplemented the paged_results control using similar code.

This code is more memory-efficient, storing only a pointer to the object, not the returned object.  However this means parts of the original request must be retained

When these controls are used by a client that connects to the Global Catalog server, these modules failed to correctly retain the control data along with the request, causing a use-after-free and an abort when this is detected by the talloc library.

NOTE WELL: Unsupported Samba versions before Samba 4.7 use a single process for the LDAP servers.

All versions of Samba after Samba 4.11 use the 'prefork' process model to create a shared connection pool.  Crashing servers are restarted, but service is disrupted.

Comment 4 Hardik Vyas 2020-06-23 08:48:04 UTC

This flaw does not affect the version of samba shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat Gluster Storage 3 because there is no support for samba as Active Directory Domain Controller.
