[cifs-protocol] [MS-SMB2] allow read based on FILE_EXECUTE permission 
uri at samba.org
Thu Aug 4 08:28:21 UTC 2016
That description implies that FILE_READ_DATA is granted at open time
(NOT on read time). To test that, I tested what happens with another
operation - COPYCHUNK, and got some confusing results.
It seems that with COPYCHUNK, having FILE_EXECUTE on the *source* handle
would allow the copy, but having FILE_EXECUTE on the *destination*
handle (which also requires FILE_READ_DATA right) would not allow the copy.
See attached (made against Server2012R2) - the first two attempts test
the source handle. Both are successful - one with FILE_READ_DATA and one
without FILE_READ_DATA but with FILE_EXECUTE. The next two attempts test
the dest handle, and the one without FILE_READ_DATA but with
FILE_EXECUTE instead - fails.
Can you please clarify?
My testing also confirms that SMB1 wouldn't let you do the same - it has
read_for_execute bit in the read request for that purpose.
