AcknowledgementsRed Hat would like to thank the Samba project for reporting this issue. Upstream acknowledges Jann Horn (Google) as the original reporter.
Add the parameter:
unix extensions = no
to the [global] section of your smb.conf and restart smbd. This prevents SMB1 clients from creating symlinks on the exported file system using SMB1.
However, if the same region of the file system is also exported using NFS, NFS clients can create symlinks that potentially can also hit the race condition. For non-patched versions of Samba we recommend only exporting areas of the file system by either SMB or NFS, not both.
