Bugzilla: 895631: CVE-2013-0172 samba4: may provide authenticated users with write access to LDAP directory objects when used as an AD DC


The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:

Samba 4.0.x before 4.0.1, in certain Active Directory domain-controller configurations, does not properly interpret Access Control Entries that are based on an objectClass, which allows remote authenticated users to bypass intended restrictions on modifying LDAP directory objects by leveraging (1) objectClass access by a user, (2) objectClass access by a group, or (3) write access to an attribute.

Not vulnerable. This issue did not affect the versions of samba4 as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 as they did not include support for the Domain Controller components.
