Synopsis :

The remote Oracle Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

From Red Hat Security Advisory 2017:1852 :

An update for openldap is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux
7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security
impact of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base
score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each
vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

OpenLDAP is an open source suite of Lightweight Directory Access
Protocol (LDAP) applications and development tools. LDAP is a set of
protocols used to access and maintain distributed directory
information services over an IP network. The openldap packages contain
configuration files, libraries, and documentation for OpenLDAP.

The following packages have been upgraded to a later upstream version:
openldap (2.4.44). (BZ#1386365)

Security Fix(es) :

* A double-free flaw was found in the way OpenLDAP's slapd server
using the MDB backend handled LDAP searches. A remote attacker with
access to search the directory could potentially use this flaw to
crash slapd by issuing a specially crafted LDAP search query.
(CVE-2017-9287)

Additional Changes :

For detailed information on changes in this release, see the Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 7.4 Release Notes linked from the References section.
