Description Damiano Bianchi 2017-09-25 10:03:07 UTC
Description of problem:
No second level directories are presented to the client, after the upgrade to the latest patch (in particular CVE-2017-2619.patch), if the share configuration has the "follow symlinks = no" directive in place, even though there are no symlink in the real path.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Upgrade then place "follow symlinks = no" in the share configuration in smb.conf

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results:
Client cannot browse share's subdirectories (all directories in the share seems to be empty).

Expected results:
Disabling the "follow synlinks" or downgrading samba all subdirectories are browsable again.

I can confirm this bug for samba.x86_64 0:3.6.23-45.el6_9

downgrade to previous version samba.x86_64 0:3.6.23-44.el6_9 solved it.

Pavel, you also have 'follow symlinks = no' in your smb.conf file?
