OpenLDAP vulnerability




Cameron Hotchkies discovered that OpenLDAP did not correctly handle
certain ASN.1 BER data. A remote attacker could send a specially crafted
packet and crash slapd, leading to a denial of service.

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 8.04
Ubuntu 7.10
Ubuntu 7.04
Ubuntu 6.06

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.
