CVE-2018-16851

Priority
Description
Samba from version 4.0.0 and before versions 4.7.12, 4.8.7, 4.9.3 is
vulnerable to a denial of service. During the processing of an LDAP search
before Samba's AD DC returns the LDAP entries to the client, the entries
are cached in a single memory object with a maximum size of 256MB. When
this size is reached, the Samba process providing the LDAP service will
follow the NULL pointer, terminating the process. There is no further
vulnerability associated with this issue, merely a denial of service.
