Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200803-28 (OpenLDAP: Denial of Service vulnerabilities)

The following errors have been discovered in OpenLDAP:
Tony Blake discovered an error which exists within the normalisation of     'objectClasses' (CVE-2007-5707).
Thomas Sesselmann reported that, when running as a proxy-caching server     the 'add_filter_attrs()' function in servers/slapd/overlay/pcache.c     does not correctly NULL terminate 'new_attrs' (CVE-2007-5708).
A double-free bug exists in attrs_free() in the file     servers/slapd/back-bdb/modrdn.c, which was discovered by Jonathan     Clarke (CVE-2008-0658).

Impact :

A remote attacker can cause a Denial of Serivce by sending a malformed     'objectClasses' attribute, and via unknown vectors that prevent the     'new_attrs' array from being NULL terminated, and via a modrdn     operation with a NOOP (LDAP_X_NO_OPERATION) control.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
