Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

A flaw was found in the way OpenLDAP handled selfwrite access. Users
with selfwrite access were able to modify the distinguished name of
any user. Users with selfwrite access should only be able to modify
their own distinguished name. (CVE-2006-4600)

A memory leak bug was found in OpenLDAP's ldap_start_tls_s() function.
An application using this function could result in an Out Of Memory
(OOM) condition, crashing the application.
