Debian DLA-1554-2 : 389-ds-base regression update

High Nessus Plugin ID 118407


The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


A regression was found in the recent security update for 389-ds-base (the 389 Directory Server), announced as DLA-1554-2, caused by an incomplete fix for CVE-2018-14648. The regression caused the server to crash when processing requests with empty attributes.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', this problem has been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your 389-ds-base packages.

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


Upgrade the affected packages.
