The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
The 389 Directory Server is an LDAPv3 compliant server. The base
packages include the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)
server and command-line utilities for server administration.
A flaw was found in the way the 389 Directory Server daemon (ns-slapd)
handled access control instructions (ACIs) using certificate groups.
If an LDAP user that had a certificate group defined attempted to bind
to the directory server, it would cause ns-slapd to enter an infinite
loop and consume an excessive amount of CPU time. (CVE-2012-0833)
These updated 389-ds-base packages also include numerous bug fixes and
Users are advised to upgrade to these updated 389-ds-base packages,
which resolve these issues and add these enhancements. After
installing this update, the 389 server service will be restarted
