Amazon Linux AMI : 389-ds-base (ALAS-2013-223)

This script is Copyright (C) 2013-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

ns-slapd in 389 Directory Server before 1.3.0.8 allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (server crash) via a crafted
Distinguished Name (DN) in a MOD operation request.

389 Directory Server does not properly restrict access to entity
attributes, which allows remote authenticated users to obtain
sensitive information via a search query for the attribute.
