denial-of-service vulnerability

Related CVEs CVE-2020-25709 CVE-2020-25710

Two vulnerabilities in the certificate list syntax verification and in the handling of CSN normalization were discovered in OpenLDAP, a free implementation of the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol. An unauthenticated remote attacker can take advantage of these flaws to cause a denial of service (slapd daemon crash) via specially crafted packets.

For Debian 8 jessie, these problems have been fixed in version 2.4.40+dfsg-1+deb8u8.

We recommend that you upgrade your openldap packages.
