Ubuntu Security Notice USN-4622-1

openldap vulnerability

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 20.10
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS


OpenLDAP could be made to crash or run programs if it received
specially crafted network traffic.

Software Description:
- openldap: Lightweight Directory Access Protocol


It was discovered that OpenLDAP incorrectly handled certain network
packets. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause OpenLDAP to crash,
resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 20.10:
  slapd                           2.4.53+dfsg-1ubuntu1.1

Ubuntu 20.04 LTS:
  slapd                           2.4.49+dfsg-2ubuntu1.4

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
  slapd                           2.4.45+dfsg-1ubuntu1.7

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
  slapd                           2.4.42+dfsg-2ubuntu3.10

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
