MDKSA-2002:013: openldap Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the openldap package
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2002:013 (openldap).
A problem exists in all versions of OpenLDAP from 2.0.0 through 2.0.19 where
permissions are not properly checked using access control lists when a user
tries to remove an attribute from an object in the directory by replacing it's
values with an empty list. Schema checking is still enforced, so a user can only
remove attributes that the schema does not require the object to possess.
