CentOS Update for 389-ds-base CESA-2017:0920 centos7

Published: 2017-04-14 04:30:08
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P

Detection Type:
Linux Distribution Package

Summary:
Check the version of 389-ds-base

Detection Method:
Checks if a vulnerable version is present on the target host.

Technical Details:
389 Directory Server is an LDAP version 3 (LDAPv3) compliant server. The base Linux Distribution Packages include the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) server and command-line utilities for server administration. Security Fix(es): * An invalid pointer dereference flaw was found in the way 389-ds-base handled LDAP bind requests. A remote unauthenticated attacker could use this flaw to make ns-slapd crash via a specially crafted LDAP bind request, resulting in denial of service. (CVE-2017-2668) Red Hat would like to thank Joachim Jabs (F24) for reporting this issue. Bug Fix(es): * Previously, when adding a filtered role definition that uses the 'nsrole' virtual attribute in the filter, Directory Server terminated unexpectedly. A patch has been applied, and now the roles plug-in ignores all virtual attributes. As a result, an error message is logged when an invalid filter is used. Additionally, the role is deactivated and Directory Server no longer fails. (BZ#1429498) * In a replication topology, Directory Server incorrectly calculated the size of string format entries when a lot of entries were deleted. The calculated size of entries was smaller than the actual required size. Consequently, Directory Server allocated insufficient memory and terminated unexpectedly when the data was written to it. With this update, the size of string format entries is now calculated correctly in the described situation and Directory Server no longer terminates unexpectedly. (BZ#1429495)

Affected Versions:
389-ds-base on CentOS 7

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".
