Ubuntu 5.10 / 6.06 LTS / 6.10 : openldap2.2 vulnerability (USN-384-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2006-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2007-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Evgeny Legerov discovered that the OpenLDAP libraries did not
correctly truncate authcid names. This situation would trigger an
assert and abort the program using the libraries. A remote attacker
could send specially crafted bind requests that would lead to an LDAP
server denial of service.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Solution :

Update the affected ldap-utils, libldap-2.2-7 and / or slapd packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P)
CVSS Temporal Score : 4.3
(CVSS2#E:ND/RL:OF/RC:C)
Public Exploit Available : true
