Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : openldap (MDVSA-2008:058)

Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

A vulnerability was found in slapo-pcache in slapd of OpenLDAP prior
to 2.3.39 when running as a proxy-caching server. It would allocate
memory using a malloc variant rather than calloc, which prevented an
array from being properly initialized and could possibly allow
attackers to cause a denial of service (CVE-2007-5708).

Two vulnerabilities were found in how slapd handled modify (prior to
2.3.26) and modrdn (prior to 2.3.29) requests with NOOP control on
objects stored in the BDB backend. An authenticated user with
permission to perform modify (CVE-2007-6698) or modrdn (CVE-2008-0658)
operations could cause slapd to crash.

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.1
