Published: 2013-03-15 04:21:36
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:

The remote host is missing an update for the '389-ds-base' Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Affected Versions:
389-ds-base on CentOS 6

Please install the updated Linux Distribution Packages.

Technical Details:
The 389 Directory Server is an LDAPv3 compliant server. The base Linux Distribution Packages include the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) server and command-line utilities for server administration. A flaw was found in the way LDAPv3 control data was handled by 389 Directory Server. If a malicious user were able to bind to the directory (even anonymously) and send an LDAP request containing crafted LDAPv3 control data, they could cause the server to crash, denying service to the directory. (CVE-2013-0312) The CVE-2013-0312 issue was discovered by Thierry Bordaz of Red Hat. This update also fixes the following bugs: * After an upgrade from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.3 to version 6.4, the upgrade script did not update the schema file for the PamConfig object class. Consequently, new features for PAM such as configuration of multiple instances and pamFilter attribute could not be used because of the schema violation. With this update, the upgrade script updates the schema file for the PamConfig object class and new features function properly. (BZ#910994) * Previously, the valgrind test suite reported recurring memory leaks in the modify_update_last_modified_attr() function. The size of the leaks averaged between 60-80 bytes per modify call. In environments where modify operations were frequent, this caused significant problems. Now, memory leaks no longer occur in the modify_update_last_modified_attr() function. (BZ#910995) * The Directory Server (DS) failed when multi-valued attributes were replaced. The problem occurred when replication was enabled, while the server executing the modification was configured as a single master and there was at least one replication agreement. Consequently, the modification requests were refused by the master server, which returned a code 20 'Type or value exists' error message. These requests were replacements of multi-valued attributes, and the error only occurred when one of the new values matched one of the current values of the attribute, but had a different letter case. Now, modification requests function properly and no longer return code 20 errors. (BZ#910996) * The DNA (distributed numeric assignment) plug-in, under certain conditions, could log error messages with the 'DB_LOCK_DEADLOCK' error code when attempting to create an entry with a uidNumber attribute. Now, DNA handles this case properly and errors no longer occur during attempts to create entries with uidNumber attributes. (BZ#911467) * Posix Winsync plugin was calling an internal mo ...

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
