Description

The handle_connection_error function in ldap_helper.c in bind-dyndb-ldap before 1.1.0rc1 does not properly handle LDAP query errors, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop and named server hang) via a non-alphabet character in the base DN in an LDAP search DNS query.

Solution(s)

  • oracle-linux-upgrade-bind-dyndb-ldap

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
