[DSA068] DSA-068-1 openldap Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
DSA-068-1 openldap

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The CERT advisory lists a number of vulnerabilities in various
LDAP implementations, based on the
results of the PROTOS LDAPv3 test suite. These tests found one
problem in OpenLDAP, a free LDAP implementation which is shipped
as part of Debian GNU/Linux 2.2.

The problem is that slapd did not handle packets which had
BER fields of invalid length and would crash if it received them.
A possible hacker could use this to mount a remote denial of service attack.

This problem has been fixed in version 1.2.12-1, and we recommend
that you upgrade your slapd package immediately.
