USN-4078-1: OpenLDAP vulnerabilities

30 July 2019

Several security issues were fixed in OpenLDAP.




It was discovered that OpenLDAP incorrectly handled rootDN delegation. A
database administrator could use this issue to request authorization as an
identity from another database, contrary to expectations. (CVE-2019-13057)

It was discovered that OpenLDAP incorrectly handled SASL authentication and
session encryption. After a first SASL bind was completed, it was possible
to obtain access by performing simple binds, contrary to expectations.

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 19.04
Ubuntu 18.04
Ubuntu 16.04

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