Description Vladimir V. Kamarzin 2007-11-16 08:59:33 MSK
Race condition in nss_ldap, when used in applications that use pthread and fork
after a call to nss_ldap, does not properly handle the LDAP connection, which
might cause nss_ldap to return the wrong user data to the wrong process. NOTE:
this issue was originally reported for Dovecot with the wrong mailboxes being
returned, but other applications might also be affected.


Update to version 259.

У меня на этой неделе профаттестация. Если всё будет сносно - то на будущей
неделе займусь.

Пакет обновили, а багу не закрыли, безобразие.
Comment 5 Vladimir V. Kamarzin 2008-01-23 09:15:04 MSK
И в ченджлог пакета упоминание о CVE не добавили.
Comment 6 Vladimir V. Kamarzin 2008-01-23 09:15:25 MSK
И в бранч и в updates не положили.

Ну... безобразие, но надо иногда страховать коллег; за что тебе и спасибо :)
