Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : openldap (MDKSA-2002:013)

High Nessus Plugin ID 13921


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


A problem exists in all versions of OpenLDAP from 2.0.0 through 2.0.19 where permissions are not properly checked using access control lists when a user tries to remove an attribute from an object in the directory by replacing it's values with an empty list. Schema checking is still enforced, so a user can only remove attributes that the schema does not require the object to possess.


Update the affected packages.
