Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2017 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
Karsten Heymann discovered that OpenLDAP incorrectly handled certain
search requests. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause slapd
to crash, resulting in a denial of service.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
Update the affected slapd package.
