Description Vincent Danen 2010-06-16 17:59:32 UTC
A vulnerability in Red Hat Directory Server and the 389 Directory Server was discovered.  The code that parses the GER request (_ger_parse_control()) can dereference a NULL pointer.  An unauthenticated user able to communicate with the Directory Server could use a crafted search query that would cause the Directory Server to crash.

This issue has been assigned the name CVE-2010-2222.
