Package : openldap CVE ID : CVE-2021-27212

A vulnerability in the Certificate List Exact Assertion validation was discovered in OpenLDAP, a free implementation of the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol. An unauthenticated remote attacker can take advantage of this flaw to cause a denial of service (slapd daemon crash) via specially crafted packets.

For the stable distribution (buster), this problem has been fixed in version 2.4.47+dfsg-3+deb10u6.

We recommend that you upgrade your openldap packages.
