USN-3307-1: OpenLDAP vulnerability

1 June 2017

OpenLDAP could be made to crash if it received specially crafted network traffic.




Karsten Heymann discovered that OpenLDAP incorrectly handled certain search
requests. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause slapd to crash,
resulting in a denial of service.

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 17.04
Ubuntu 16.10
Ubuntu 16.04
Ubuntu 14.04

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