Vulnerability Assessment Details

USN152-1 : openldap2, libpam-ldap, libnss-ldap vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
openldap2, libpam-ldap, libnss-ldap vulnerabilities

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

These remote packages are missing security patches :
- ldap-utils
- libldap2
- libldap2-dev
- libnss-ldap
- libpam-ldap
- libslapd2-dev
- slapd


Description :

Andrea Barisani discovered a flaw in the SSL handling of pam-ldap and
libnss-ldap. When a client connected to a slave LDAP server using SSL,
the slave server did not use SSL as well when contacting the LDAP
master server. This caused passwords and other confident information
to be transmitted unencrypted between the slave and the master.

Solution :

Upgrade to :
- ldap-utils-2.1.30-3ubuntu3.1 (Ubuntu 5.04)
- libldap2-2.1.30-3ubuntu3.1 (Ubuntu 5.04)
- libldap2-dev-2.1.30-3ubuntu3.1 (Ubuntu 5.04)
- libnss-ldap-220-1ubuntu0.1 (Ubuntu 5.04)
- libpam-ldap-169-1ubuntu0.1 (Ubuntu 5.04)
- libslapd2-dev-2.1.30-3ubuntu3.1 (Ubuntu 5.04)
- slapd-2.1.30-3ubuntu3.1 (Ubuntu 5.04)
