Debian Security Advisory DSA-2628-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Moritz Muehlenhoff February 18, 2013 http://www.debian.org/security/faq

Package : nss-pam-ldapd Vulnerability : buffer overflow Problem type : local (remote) Debian-specific: no CVE ID : CVE-2013-0288 Debian Bug : 690319

Garth Mollett discovered that a file descriptor overflow issue in the use of FD_SET() in nss-pam-ldapd, which provides NSS and PAM modules for using LDAP as a naming service, can lead to a stack-based buffer overflow. An attacker could, under some circumstances, use this flaw to cause a process that has the NSS or PAM module loaded to crash or potentially execute arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (squeeze) this problem has been fixed in version 0.7.15+squeeze3.

For the testing distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 0.8.10-3.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 0.8.10-3.

We recommend that you upgrade your nss-pam-ldapd packages.
