Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : openldap (MDKSA-2002:013)

This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

A problem exists in all versions of OpenLDAP from 2.0.0 through 2.0.19
where permissions are not properly checked using access control lists
when a user tries to remove an attribute from an object in the
directory by replacing it's values with an empty list. Schema checking
is still enforced, so a user can only remove attributes that the
schema does not require the object to possess.
