Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : openldap (MDVSA-2012:130)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 61979


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


A vulnerability was found and corrected in openldap :

slapd in OpenLDAP before 2.4.30 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (assertion failure and daemon exit) via an LDAP search query with attrsOnly set to true, which causes empty attributes to be returned (CVE-2012-1164).

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.


Update the affected packages.
