1. Summary:

Updated openldap packages that fix multiple security issues are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate
security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores,
which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability
from the CVE links in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64

3. Description:

OpenLDAP is an open source suite of LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access
Protocol) applications and development tools.

Multiple flaws were discovered in the way the slapd daemon handled modify
relative distinguished name (modrdn) requests. An authenticated user with
privileges to perform modrdn operations could use these flaws to crash the
slapd daemon via specially-crafted modrdn requests. (CVE-2010-0211,
CVE-2010-0212)

Red Hat would like to thank CERT-FI for responsibly reporting these flaws,
who credit Ilkka Mattila and Tuomas Salomäki for the discovery of the
issues.

Users of OpenLDAP should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
a backported patch to correct these issues. After installing this update,
the OpenLDAP daemons will be restarted automatically.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/docs/DOC-11259
