Ivano Cristofolini discovered that Samba incorrectly handled some Local Security Authority (LSA) remote procedure calls (RPC). A remote, authenticated attacker could exploit this to grant administrative privileges to arbitrary users. The administrative privileges could be used to bypass permission checks performed by the Samba server.
