Amazon Linux AMI : openldap (ALAS-2012-101)

low Nessus Plugin ID 69591
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.


A denial of service flaw was found in the way the OpenLDAP server daemon (slapd) processed certain search queries requesting only attributes and no values. In certain configurations, a remote attacker could issue a specially crafted LDAP search query that, when processed by slapd, would cause slapd to crash due to an assertion failure.


Run 'yum update openldap' to update your system.
