Description Chandrasekar Kannan 2008-12-27 03:10:39 EST
The DNBuilder unescapes \xx sequences in DNs as specified by RFC 4514. However, if the escape sequence represents a >1 byte UTF-8 sequence, the decoder fails to yield the correct result. The incorrect decoding is caused by treating each escaped character individually, instead of treating any consecutive number of characters as one UTF-8 sequence.

* {{cn=J\C3\B6rg Henne,...}} should yield {{cn=J
