Ubuntu 4.10 / 5.04 : openldap2, libpam-ldap, libnss-ldap vulnerabilities (USN-152-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2005-2015 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2006-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description :

Andrea Barisani discovered a flaw in the SSL handling of pam-ldap and
libnss-ldap. When a client connected to a slave LDAP server using SSL,
the slave server did not use SSL as well when contacting the LDAP
master server. This caused passwords and other confident information
to be transmitted unencrypted between the slave and the master.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
CVSS Temporal Score : 4.3
Public Exploit Available : true
