Created attachment 8475 [details]

A security update for Samba is planned. Deadline is 2017-03-29.

* Symlink race allows access outside share definition (CVE-2017-2619).

In UCS 4.1 we currently ship Samba 4.5.1.

Release of Samba 4.5.6 is scheduled for March 15, this is supposed to contain - quote "a large set of supporting fixes". The actual security update will be 4.5.7.

Additional patches are required, I've committed them as:


Samba is rebuilding, yaml adjusted.
Comment 4 Felix Botner univentionstaff 2017-03-17 17:09:17 CET
There is a problem with shares and windows 8.1.

I i create a folder via the windows explorer in a samba share, the folder is not visible until i reload the explorer. And if i reload very often or change into a share folder and back very fast and very often i get a windows error message:
Das Handle ist ungültig:

In both cases the final smbd error message (log 10) is

smbd_smb2_request_done_ex: idx[1] status[NT_STATUS_INVALID_HANDLE] body[8] dyn[yes:1] at ../source3/smbd/smb2_server.c:3145

This does not happen with windows 7.

This happens with 2:4.5.1-1.854.201703162118, but not with the released version 2:4.5.1-1.851.201701050832.

Comment 10 Arvid Requate univentionstaff 2017-03-18 20:02:17 CET
Ok, the patch 99_fix_CVE-2017-2619.quilt could introduce this. It adds code to OpenDir_fsp (in dir.c) which returns EBADF under certain conditions, and EBADF gets mapped to NT_STATUS_INVALID_HANDLE. OpenDir_fsp may get called by dptr_create:

[2017/03/17 15:54:54.905298,  5, pid=26913, effective(2013, 5001), real(2013, 0)] ../source3/smbd/dir.c:474(dptr_create)
  dptr_create dir=.
[2017/03/17 15:54:54.905327,  3, pid=26913, effective(2013, 5001), real(2013, 0)] ../source3/smbd/smb2_server.c:3097(smbd_smb2_request_error_ex)
  smbd_smb2_request_error_ex: smbd_smb2_request_error_ex: idx[1] status[NT_STATUS_INVALID_HANDLE] || at ../source3/smbd/smb2_query_directory.c:154

No idea yet what's going on. I've reported this upstream.

One other code that might play into this is the 99_sambabug12531-squashed.quilt, where set_conn_connectpath -> canonicalize_absolute_path probably transforms "." to "/" in Felix's "smbd log - many reloads, windows error".

One option would be to update to 4.5.7 when it's released on Monday. That way we are the closest to upstream and better collaborate in case this really turns out to be a problem. I favor this approach currently.
