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

High Nessus Plugin ID 60397


The remote Scientific Linux host is missing a security update.


When the nss_ldap plug-in attempted to format the list of a group's members for an application, it did not correctly detect when the space provided to store that list was insufficient. For large groups, this resulted in a corrupt heap, which typically resulted in the calling application crashing, or a segmentation fault.


Update the affected nss_ldap package.
