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.
