Scientific Linux Security Update : openldap on SL3.x i386/x86_64

Low Nessus Plugin ID 60201


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


A flaw was found in the way OpenLDAP handled selfwrite access. Users with selfwrite access were able to modify the distinguished name of any user. Users with selfwrite access should only be able to modify their own distinguished name. (CVE-2006-4600)

A memory leak bug was found in OpenLDAP's ldap_start_tls_s() function.
An application using this function could result in an Out Of Memory (OOM) condition, crashing the application.


Update the affected packages.
