DESCRIPTION
OpenLDAP[1] is an LDAPv2 and LDAPv3 server available for several
platforms.

The SuSE Security Team reviewed critical parts of the OpenLDAP code
and found several remote and local vulnerabilities, all fixed in this
update.

The vulnerabilities consists mainly in buffer overflows in both the
OpenLDAP server and in the libraries provided with the OpenLDAP
package. Some of these vulnerabilities can be exploited by attackers
remotely or locally to compromise the OpenLDAP server or applications
linked against the vulnerable libraries.

Conectiva Linux 6.0 users should atent to the fact that the package
openldap2 here updated was released as "experimental" in that
distribution.


SOLUTION
It is recommended that all OpenLDAP 2.x users upgrade their packages.
If the service is already running, the upgrade will automatically
restart it.
