Thomas Sesselmann reported that, when running as a proxy-caching server
the 'add_filter_attrs()' function in servers/slapd/overlay/pcache.c
does not correctly NULL terminate 'new_attrs' (CVE-2007-5708).
A double-free bug exists in attrs_free() in the file

A remote attacker can cause a Denial of Serivce by sending a malformed
