Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2005:190: nss_ldap

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the nss_ldap package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:190 (nss_ldap).



A bug was found in the way the pam_ldap module processed certain failure
messages. If the server includes supplemental data in an authentication failure
result message, but the data does not include any specific error code, the
pam_ldap module would proceed as if the authentication request had succeeded,
and authentication would succeed. This affects versions 169 through 179 of
pam_ldap.

The updated packages have been patched to address this issue.
