MDKSA-2005:190: nss_ldap Vulnerability Scan

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:190 (nss_ldap).

pam_ldap module would proceed as if the authentication request had succeeded,
and authentication would succeed. This affects versions 169 through 179 of

The updated packages have been patched to address this issue.
