Description Marian Rehak 2019-05-20 07:54:22 UTC
As per upstream advisory:

The dnsserver RPC pipe provides administrative facilities to modify DNS records and zones which allows an authenticated user to crash the RPC server process via a NULL pointer de-reference. This issue affects Samba 4.0 and later.

There is no further vulnerability associated with this issue, merely a denial of service.

Name: The samba project

Comment 3 Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2019-06-10 04:54:18 UTC

The dnsserver task can be stopped by setting 
 'dcerpc endpoint servers = -dnsserver'
in the smb.conf and restarting Samba.

Created samba tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1721872]

Comment 9 Hardik Vyas 2019-06-19 08:09:57 UTC

This issue did not affect the version of samba as shipped with 'Red Hat Gluster Storage 3' as they did not include support for Active Directory Domain Controller.
