Amazon Linux AMI : openldap (ALAS-2014-294)

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


Synopsis :

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

Description :

The rwm overlay in OpenLDAP 2.4.23, 2.4.36, and earlier does not
properly count references, which allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (slapd crash) by unbinding immediately after a
search request, which triggers rwm_conn_destroy to free the session
context while it is being used by rwm_op_search.
