Synopsis :

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

Description :

These updated openldap packages fix a flaw in the way the OpenLDAP
slapd daemon handled modify and modrdn requests with NOOP control on
objects stored in a Berkeley DB (BDB) storage backend. An
authenticated attacker with permission to perform modify or modrdn
operations on such LDAP objects could cause slapd to crash.
