Description

A denial of service vulnerability was discovered in Samba's LDAP server before versions 4.7.12, 4.8.7, and 4.9.3. A CNAME loop could lead to infinite recursion in the server. An unprivileged local attacker could create such an entry, leading to denial of service.

Solution(s)

  • samba-upgrade-4_7_12
  • samba-upgrade-4_8_7
  • samba-upgrade-4_9_3
