Synopsis :

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

Description :

A flaw was found in the way 389 Directory Server enforced ACLs after
performing an LDAP modify relative distinguished name (modrdn)
operation. After modrdn was used to move part of a tree, the ACLs
defined on the moved (Distinguished Name) were not properly enforced
until the server was restarted. This could allow LDAP users to access
information that should be restricted by the defined ACLs.
(CVE-2012-4450)

After installing this update, the 389 server service will be restarted
automatically.
