Subject: Trustix Security Advisory - bind, openldap


Trustix today released security updates for the following packages:

Trustix specific: no
Distribution versions: All
A remote hole in bind allows for the environment of the server process to be leaked to an attacker.

Trustix specific: yes
Distribution versions: 1.2 from jan. 19. 2000
A silly bug in the rpm spec file for openldap makes the server run by default, which violates Trustix' standard of no running services by default. Note that there are no known remote security holes in openldap as shipped by Trustix.

People who have this version of openldap installed on their systems without intentions of using it should run this set of commands:
# chkconfig ldap off
# service ldap stop
