Synopsis :

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

openldap2 was updated to fix two security issues and one non-security
bug.

The following vulnerabilities were fixed :

- A remote attacker could cause a denial of service
through a NULL pointer dereference and crash via an
empty attribute list in a deref control in a search
request. (bnc#916897 CVE-2015-1545)

- A remote attacker could cause a denial of service
(crash) via a crafted search query with a matched values
control. (bnc#916914 CVE-2015-1546)

The following non-security issue was fixed :

- Prevent connection-0 (internal connection) from showing
up in the monitor backend (bnc#905959)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
