Scientific Linux Security Update : openldap on SL7.x x86_64 (20170801)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 102649
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


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.
