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

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 77084


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


It was found that when replication was enabled for each attribute in 389 Directory Server, which is the default configuration, the server returned replicated metadata when the directory was searched while debugging was enabled. A remote attacker could use this flaw to disclose potentially sensitive information. (CVE-2014-3562)

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


Update the affected packages.
