medium Nessus Plugin ID 84261
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

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.
