LDAP NULL Base Connection

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host may give an attacker information useful for future attacks.

Description

Improperly configured LDAP servers will allow the directory BASE to be set to NULL. This allows information to be gathered without any prior knowledge of the directory structure. Coupled with a NULL BIND, an anonymous user can query your LDAP server using a tool such as LdapMiner.

Solution

Disable NULL base connections.
