Scientific Linux Security Update : openldap on SL4.x, SL5.x i386/x86_64
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 60361
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionThese updated openldap packages fix a flaw in the way the OpenLDAP slapd daemon handled modify and modrdn requests with NOOP control on objects stored in a Berkeley DB (BDB) storage backend. An authenticated attacker with permission to perform modify or modrdn operations on such LDAP objects could cause slapd to crash.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
