Scientific Linux Security Update : 389-ds-base on SL6.x i386/x86_64
Low Nessus Plugin ID 61335
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionThe 389 Directory Server is an LDAPv3 compliant server. The base packages include the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) server and command-line utilities for server administration.
A flaw was found in the way the 389 Directory Server daemon (ns-slapd) handled access control instructions (ACIs) using certificate groups.
If an LDAP user that had a certificate group defined attempted to bind to the directory server, it would cause ns-slapd to enter an infinite loop and consume an excessive amount of CPU time. (CVE-2012-0833)
These updated 389-ds-base packages also include numerous bug fixes and enhancements.
Users are advised to upgrade to these updated 389-ds-base packages, which resolve these issues and add these enhancements. After installing this update, the 389 server service will be restarted automatically.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
