Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : nss_ldap (MDKSA-2005:190)

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

A bug was found in the way the pam_ldap module processed certain
failure messages. If the server includes supplemental data in an
authentication failure result message, but the data does not include
any specific error code, the pam_ldap module would proceed as if the
authentication request had succeeded, and authentication would
succeed. This affects versions 169 through 179 of pam_ldap.

The updated packages have been patched to address this issue.

Solution :

Update the affected nss_ldap and / or pam_ldap packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5

Family: Mandriva Local Security Checks
