Doc Text:
A vulnerability was found in Samba's "rpcecho" development server, a non-Windows RPC server used to test Samba's DCE/RPC stack elements. This vulnerability stems from an RPC function that can be blocked indefinitely. The issue arises because the "rpcecho" service operates with only one worker in the main RPC task, allowing calls to the "rpcecho" server to be blocked for a specified time, causing service disruptions. This disruption is triggered by a "sleep()" call in the "dcesrv_echo_TestSleep()" function under specific conditions. Authenticated users or attackers can exploit this vulnerability to make calls to the "rpcecho" server, requesting it to block for a specified duration, effectively disrupting most services and leading to a complete denial of service on the AD DC. The DoS affects all other services as "rpcecho" runs in the main RPC task.

Description TEJ RATHI 2023-10-03 07:34:37 UTC
Calls to the rpcecho server on the AD DC can request that the server block for a user-defined amount of time, denying service. One RPC function provided by "rpcecho" can block, essentially indefinitely, and because the "rpcecho" service is provided from the main RPC task, which has only one worker, this denies essentially all service on the AD DC.
