An improper input sanitization flaw was found in the way phpldapadmin, a web-based tool for managing of LDAP servers, performed sanitization of the 'base' variable (intended to contain LDAP base DN) prior displaying the LDAP search query results back to the requester. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted URL, which once visited by an unsuspecting, authenticated phpldapadmin user could lead to arbitary HTML or web script execution.
