Release date: 
Wednesday, October 29, 2008 - 19:24
Subject: 
nss_ldap-253-12AXS3
Affected Channels: 
Asianux Server 3 for x86
Asianux Server 3 for x86_64
Severity: 
Moderate
Description: 

The nss_ldap package contains the nss_ldap and pam_ldap modules.
The nss_ldap module is a plug-in which allows applications to retrieve information about users and groups from a directory server.
The pam_ldap module allows PAM-aware applications to use a directory server to verify user passwords.
Fixed bugs:
Race condition in nss_ldap, when used in applications that are linked against the pthread library and fork after a call to nss_ldap, might send user data to the wrong process because of improper handling of the LDAP connection.
NOTE: this issue was originally reported for Dovecot with the wrong mailboxes being returned, but other applications might also be affected.
- Automatic DNS discovery of the LDAP server does not work
- pam_ldap tries to change passwords twice

Solution:
