OpenLDAP is an open source suite of LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access
Protocol) applications and development tools.
A denial of service flaw was found in the way the OpenLDAP server
daemon (slapd) processed certain search queries requesting only
attributes and no values. In certain configurations, a remote attacker
could issue a specially crafted LDAP search query that, when processed
by slapd, would cause slapd to crash due to an assertion failure.
These updated openldap packages include numerous bug fixes.
Users of OpenLDAP are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain backported patches to correct these issues. After
installing this update, the OpenLDAP daemons will be restarted
