Description Richard Schütz 2020-11-11 09:18:00 UTC
After upgrading from 4.10.18-SerNet-Ubuntu-10.bionic to 4.12.9-SerNet-Ubuntu-9.bionic smbd segfaults when a shared printer is accessed and smb.conf contains invalid users configuration.

_spoolss_OpenPrinterEx() from the printing code calls user_ok_token() with domain=NULL which finally leads to a NULL pointer dereference by strlen() in token_contains_name().

This is a regression introduced by commit 5de7c91e6d4e98f438157a7675c8582cabdd828d ("s3:smbd: Fix %U substitutions if it contains a domain name").

Oh, looks like you fixed this in a different way by modifying the underlying called code.

I'm pretty sure this is the same bug though as 14568 though. I don't think your fix is actually needed as we ensure the all the callers now pass
info->domain_name here. Still, doesn't hurt to check ther.
