Author: JT Smith

Posted at "CERT released an advisory that details a number of vulnerabilities as
found in a variety of different LDAP implementations. The results of
these tests showed one vulnerability in OpenLDAP with slapd not
handling packets with certain invalid fields. A malicious attacker
could craft such invalid packets, resulting in a denial of service
attack on the affected server."
