Updated redhat-ds-base packages that fix one security issue are now available for Red Hat Directory Server 8. Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Important security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in the References section.

The redhat-ds-base packages provide Red Hat Directory Server, which is an LDAPv3 compliant server. The base packages include the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) server and command-line utilities for server administration. It was found that when replication was enabled for each attribute in Red Hat Directory Server, which is the default configuration, the server returned replicated metadata when the directory was searched while debugging was enabled. A remote attacker could use this flaw to disclose potentially sensitive information. (CVE-2014-3562) This issue was discovered by Ludwig Krispenz of Red Hat. All Red Hat Directory Server 8 users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue.
