slapd in OpenLDAP 2.4.45 and earlier creates a PID file after dropping privileges to a non-root account, which might allow local users to kill arbitrary processes by leveraging access to this non-root account for PID file modification before a root script executes a "kill `cat /pathname`" command, as demonstrated by openldap-initscript.
CVSS 3 base score: 4.7
per upstream bug, upstream doesn't consider this to be a security issue. Marking as not-affected.
