Description Tomas Hoger 2008-08-13 11:22:19 EDT
Richard Megginson identified multiple memory leaks affecting Red Hat Directory Server and Fedora Directory Server.  These issues may possibly be triggered by unauthenticated remote attackers with access to LDAP port.  An attacker can cause Directory Server to use excessive amount of memory, and possibly crash or terminate unexpectedly when running out of available memory.  Memory leaks that can be triggered by an anonymous user occur during authentication / bind phase, or in (anonymous) LDAP search requests.

Affected version:
Red Hat Directory Server 7.1, 8.0
Fedora Directory Server 1.1.1 and earlier
