USN-1266-1: OpenLDAP vulnerability

17 November 2011

An OpenLDAP server could potentially be made to crash if it received specially crafted network traffic from an authenticated user.




It was discovered that slapd contained an off-by-one error. An
authenticated attacker could potentially exploit this by sending a
crafted crafted LDIF entry containing an empty postalAddress.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 11.10
Ubuntu 11.04
Ubuntu 10.10
Ubuntu 10.04

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
