Hi Amar,
The fix for this patch is already present in master branch as a part of the commit 052849983e51a061d7fb2c3ffd74fa78bb257084 (https://review.gluster.org/#/c/glusterfs/+/20933/), which is not there in the release branches. Shall I move this BZ to modified, and send the relevant changes to fix the locks.c CVE alone to the supported release branch(es)?

Got an ack from Amar via email. Moving it to MODIFIED. Will be sending the fix for locks vulnerability alone on release branches.

This bug is getting closed because a release has been made available that should address the reported issue. In case the problem is still not fixed with glusterfs-4.1.6, please open a new bug report.
