Amazon Linux AMI : openldap (ALAS-2012-101)

This script is Copyright (C) 2013-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.

Description :

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.
