Scientific Linux Security Update : 389-ds-base on SL6.x i386/x86_64

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

Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

It was discovered that the 389 Directory Server did not honor defined
attribute access controls when evaluating search filter expressions. A
remote attacker (with permission to query the Directory Server) could
use this flaw to determine the values of restricted attributes via a
series of search queries with filter conditions that used restricted
attributes. (CVE-2013-2219)

This update also fixes the following bugs :

- Previously, the disk monitoring feature did not function
properly. If logging functionality was set to critical
and logging was disabled, rotated logs would be deleted.
If the attribute 'nsslapd-errorlog-level' was explicitly
set to any value, even zero, the disk monitoring feature
would not stop the Directory Server when it was supposed
to. This update corrects the disk monitoring feature
settings, and it no longer malfunctions in the described

- Previously, setting the
'nsslapd-disk-monitoring-threshold' attribute via
ldapmodify to a large value worked as expected; however,
a bug in ldapsearch caused such values for the option to
be displayed as negative values. This update corrects
the bug in ldapsearch and correct values are now

- If logging functionality was not set to critical, then
the mount point for the logs directory was incorrectly
skipped during the disk space check.

After installing this update, the 389 server service will be restarted
