Updated cherokee packages fix security vulnerability :

The cherokee_validator_ldap_check function in validator_ldap.c in Cherokee 1.2.103 and earlier, when LDAP is used, does not properly consider unauthenticated-bind semantics, which allows remote attackers to bypass authentication via an empty password (CVE-2014-4668).


Update the affected packages.
