SUSE SLED12 / SLES12 Security Update : openldap2 (SUSE-SU-2015:1077-1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 84261


The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.


openldap2 was updated to fix two security issues and one non-security bug.

The following vulnerabilities were fixed :

- A remote attacker could cause a denial of service through a NULL pointer dereference and crash via an empty attribute list in a deref control in a search request. (bnc#916897 CVE-2015-1545)

- A remote attacker could cause a denial of service (crash) via a crafted search query with a matched values control. (bnc#916914 CVE-2015-1546)

The update package also includes non-security fixes. See advisory for details.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
