Hi Simo,

We are facing the following problem: Our product, using CIFS infrastructure retrieves a file from a certain directory.
After retrieving this file  by the CIFS infrastructure into another directory, the file comes as hidden file. The file is not hidden in a first place.

We would like to know whether there is a known issue with permission translation between SAMBA and Unix?

Hi Moti,
we haven't done any assessment of glibc's GHOST vulnerability related to Samba.
Samba runs on a variety of platforms and not all of them have this vulnerability to start with (non-glibc, newer glibc, etc.).

We suggest you follow best practices and jut make sure you use a libc that is not affected.
