Scientific Linux Security Update : openldap on SL7.x x86_64

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 102649


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


The following packages have been upgraded to a later upstream version:
openldap (2.4.44).

Security Fix(es) :

- A double-free flaw was found in the way OpenLDAP's slapd server using the MDB backend handled LDAP searches. A remote attacker with access to search the directory could potentially use this flaw to crash slapd by issuing a specially crafted LDAP search query.


Update the affected packages.
