Package        : phpldapadmin
Vulnerability  : programming error
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-2654
Debian Bug     : 322423

Alexander Gerasiov discovered that phpldapadmin, a web based interface
for administering LDAP servers, allows anybody to access the LDAP
server anonymously, even if this is disabled in the configuration with
the "disable_anon_bind" statement.

The old stable distribution (woody) is not vulnerable to this problem.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.5-3sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.6c-5.

We recommend that you upgrade your phpldapadmin package.


Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
