Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 156386
CAN-2004-0823 openldap hashed password re-use
Last modified: 2015-01-07 19:09:56 EST
OpenLDAP 1.0 through 2.1.19, as used in Apple Mac OS 10.3.4 and 10.3.5 and
possibly other operating systems, may allow certain authentication schemes to
use hashed (crypt) passwords in the userPassword attribute as if they were
plaintext passwords, which allows remote attackers to re-use hashed passwords
without decrypting them.
This issue also affects RHEL2.1
