Description

Security Fix(es) :

  • An invalid pointer dereference flaw was found in the way 389-ds-base handled LDAP bind requests. A remote unauthenticated attacker could use this flaw to make ns-slapd crash via a specially crafted LDAP bind request, resulting in denial of service. (CVE-2017-2668)

Bug Fix(es) :

  • Previously, the 'deref' plug-in failed to dereference attributes that use distinguished name (DN) syntax, such as 'uniqueMember'. With this patch, the 'deref' plug-in can dereference such attributes and additionally 'Name and Optional UID' syntax. As a result, the 'deref' plug-in now supports any syntax.
