Synopsis :

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

Description :

A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in openldap :

The rwm overlay in OpenLDAP 2.4.23, 2.4.36, and earlier does not
properly count references, which allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (slapd crash) by unbinding immediately after a
search request, which triggers rwm_conn_destroy to free the session
context while it is being used by rwm_op_search (CVE-2013-4449).

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 4.3
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P)
CVSS Temporal Score : 3.7
(CVSS2#E:ND/RL:OF/RC:C)
Public Exploit Available : true
