An array index error, leading to a stack-based buffer overflow flaw,
was found in the way nss-pam-ldapd managed open file descriptors. An
attacker able to make a process have a large number of open file
descriptors and perform name lookups could use this flaw to cause the
process to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running the process. (CVE-2013-0288)
