NewStart CGSL MAIN 4.05 : 389-ds-base Vulnerability (NS-SA-2019-0140)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 127402

Synopsis

The remote machine is affected by a vulnerability.

Description

The remote NewStart CGSL host, running version MAIN 4.05, has 389-ds-base packages installed that are affected by a vulnerability:

- It was found that 389-ds-base did not properly handle long search filters with characters needing escapes, possibly leading to buffer overflows. A remote, unauthenticated attacker could potentially use this flaw to make ns-slapd crash via a specially crafted LDAP request, thus resulting in denial of service.
(CVE-2018-1089)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
