Description David Jorm 2014-09-11 01:43:24 UTC
It was discovered that the implementation used by the vtldap/ldaptive project to check that the server hostname matches the domain name in the subject's CN field was flawed. This can be exploited by a Man-in-the-middle (MITM) attack, where the attacker can spoof a valid certificate using a specially crafted subject.

Not Vulnerable. This issue only affects vtldap/ldaptive, which is not included in any supported Red Hat products.
