Scientific Linux Security Update : 389-ds-base on SL6.x i386/x86_64

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 71191


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


It was discovered that the 389 Directory Server did not properly handle certain Get Effective Rights (GER) search queries when the attribute list, which is a part of the query, included several names using the '@' character. An attacker able to submit search queries to the 389 Directory Server could cause it to crash. (CVE-2013-4485)

After installing this update, the 389 server service will be restarted automatically.


Update the affected packages.
