Description Marian Rehak 2019-05-20 08:30:47 UTC
As per upstream advisory:

A user with read access to the LDAP server can crash the LDAP server process.  Depending on the Samba version and the choice of process model, this may crash only the user's own connection.

Specifically, while in Samba 4.10 the default is for one process per connected client, site-specific configuration trigger can change this.

Samba 4.10 also supports the 'prefork' process model and by using the -M option to 'samba' and a 'single' process model. Both of these share on process between multiple clients.

Comment 1 Riccardo Schirone 2019-05-22 10:38:24 UTC

Return to the default configuration by running 'samba' with -M standard, however this may consume more memory.

Created samba tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1721873]

Comment 8 Hardik Vyas 2019-06-19 08:10:33 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.
