The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 9034
Typo in set_re_uid() call when USE_SETRESUID selected in configure.
Last modified: 2012-09-24 04:22:45 UTC
We only set the real euid, not the effective one. This is not a security issue as this is *only* used in the quota code, and only between code that brackets it with save_re_uid()/restore_re_uid(), Also this is not used on most platforms (we use USE_SETREUID by preference) but it's better to have this right.
Patches for 3.6.next and 3.5.next to follow.
Created attachment 7694 [details]
