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

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 73013

Synopsis

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

Description

It was discovered that the 389 Directory Server did not properly handle certain SASL-based authentication mechanisms. A user able to authenticate to the directory using these SASL mechanisms could connect as any other directory user, including the administrative Directory Manager account. This could allow them to modify configuration values, as well as read and write any data the directory holds. (CVE-2014-0132)

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

Solution

Update the affected packages.
