Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2021-11-03 09:00:10 UTC
As per upstream advisory:


Samba as an Active Directory Domain Controller is able to support an RODC, which is meant to have minimal privileges in a domain.

However, in accepting a ticket from a Samba or Windows RODC, Samba was not confirming that the RODC is authorized to print such a ticket, via the msDS-NeverRevealGroup and msDS-RevealOnDemandGroup (typically "Allowed RODC Replication Group" and "Denied RODC Replciation Group").

This would allow an RODC to print administrator tickets.
