Scientific Linux Security Update : libldb on SL6.x, SL7.x i386/x86_64
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 87839
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA denial of service flaw was found in the ldb_wildcard_compare() function of libldb. A remote attacker could send a specially crafted packet that, when processed by an application using libldb (for example the AD LDAP server in Samba), would cause that application to consume an excessive amount of memory and crash. (CVE-2015-3223)
A memory-read flaw was found in the way the libldb library processed LDB DN records with a null byte. An authenticated, remote attacker could use this flaw to read heap-memory pages from the server.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
