GLSA-200803-28 : OpenLDAP: Denial of Service vulnerabilities

This script is Copyright (C) 2008-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200803-28
(OpenLDAP: Denial of Service vulnerabilities)

The following errors have been discovered in OpenLDAP:
Tony Blake discovered an error which exists within the normalisation of
'objectClasses' (CVE-2007-5707).
Thomas Sesselmann reported that, when running as a proxy-caching server
the 'add_filter_attrs()' function in servers/slapd/overlay/pcache.c
does not correctly NULL terminate 'new_attrs' (CVE-2007-5708).
A double-free bug exists in attrs_free() in the file
servers/slapd/back-bdb/modrdn.c, which was discovered by Jonathan
Clarke (CVE-2008-0658).

Impact :

A remote attacker can cause a Denial of Serivce by sending a malformed
'objectClasses' attribute, and via unknown vectors that prevent the
'new_attrs' array from being NULL terminated, and via a modrdn
operation with a NOOP (LDAP_X_NO_OPERATION) control.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.

Solution :

# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=net-nds/openldap-2.3.41'
