Title: OpenLDAP: Denial of Service vulnerabilities (GLSA 200803-28)
Date: March 19, 2008
Bug(s): #197446, #209677
Multiple Denial of Service vulnerabilities have been reported in OpenLDAP.
OpenLDAP Software is an open source implementation of the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol.
Vulnerable: < 2.3.41
Unaffected: >= 2.3.41
Architectures: All supported architectures
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).
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.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All OpenLDAP users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-nds/openldap-2.3.41"
