Sun Java System Directory Server 6.x < 6.3.1 LDAP JDBC Backend DoS

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a Denial of Service (DoS) attack.

Description

The remote host is running the Sun Java System Directory Server, an LDAP server from Sun Microsystems.

The installed version is older than 6.3.1, and the proxy server included with such versions is reportedly affected by a denial of service vulnerability. By sending a specially crafted request to the JDBC backend through the proxy server, an unauthenticated remote attacker may be able to trigger a denial of service condition.

Solution

Upgrade to version 6.3.1 or higher.
