Package : phpldapadmin Vulnerability : programming error Problem-Type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE ID : CAN-2005-2654 Debian Bug : 322423

Alexander Gerasiov discovered that phpldapadmin, a web based interface for administering LDAP servers, allows anybody to access the LDAP server anonymously, even if this is disabled in the configuration with the "disable_anon_bind" statement.

The old stable distribution (woody) is not vulnerable to this problem.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in version 0.9.5-3sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in version 0.9.6c-5.

We recommend that you upgrade your phpldapadmin package.
