openSUSE 10 Security Update : openldap2-client (openldap2-client-2282)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 27364


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


OpenLDAP libldap's strval2strlen() function contained a bug when processing the authcid string of certain Bind Requests, which could allow attackers to cause an affected application (especially the OpenLDAP Server) to crash (CVE-2006-5779).


Update the affected openldap2-client packages.
