Description Jan Lieskovsky 2012-03-16 14:12:07 UTC
Multiple heap-based buffer overflow flaws were found in the way the code generated by Perl-based DCE/RPC IDL (PIDL) compiler of the Samba suite performed array memory allocation. Memory for an array having an is_size() attribute has been allocated based on the array length, which was provided by the Network Data Representation (NDR) marshalling code (converting parameters provided to the RPC call by the client to the NDR). On the other hand the loop retrieving array elements for a particular array used variable indicated by the size_is() attribute. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted remote procedure call (RPC) parameters, which once processed by the marshalling code of the Samba server would lead to Samba daemon (smbd) crash, or, potentially arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running the server.

Comment 22 Vincent Danen 2012-04-10 16:44:20 UTC
This has been corrected in upstream 3.6.4, 3.5.14, and 3.4.16.

Comment 37 Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2012-09-12 10:28:33 UTC
This flaw exists in the samba PIDL code, and therefore affects the PIDL compiler shipped within the samba4 package (samba4-pidl). However we do not ship any daemon with the samba4 package, hence the impact of this flaw on samba4 is very limited.

The samba4-pidl compiler is also used to compile code in the openchange and evolution-mapi packages. These contain client side code for exchanging data with MAPI servers. In order to successfully exploit vulnerabilities in these packages, arising out of the above flaw in samba4-pidl, one will need to MITM the connection between these clients and the MAPI servers. Hence the impact on these packages is limited as well.
