Amazon Linux AMI : 389-ds-base (ALAS-2013-223)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 70227


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


ns-slapd in 389 Directory Server before allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (server crash) via a crafted Distinguished Name (DN) in a MOD operation request.

389 Directory Server does not properly restrict access to entity attributes, which allows remote authenticated users to obtain sensitive information via a search query for the attribute.


Run 'yum update 389-ds-base' to update your system.
