Bug Fix Advisory mozldap bug fix and enhancement update

Advisory: RHBA-2007:1127-8
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2007-12-14
Last updated on: 2007-12-14
Affected Products: RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux EUS (v. 5.1.z server)

Details

Updated mozldap packages that fix several bugs and add enhancements are
now available.

The Mozilla LDAP C SDK is a set of libraries that allow applications to
communicate with LDAP directory servers. These libraries are derived from
the University of Michigan and Netscape LDAP libraries. They use the
Mozilla Netscape Portable Runtime (NSPR) API and Mozilla Network Security
Services (NSS) for cryptography.

These updated packages fix the following bugs:

* a loop in wait4msg() may have caused Mozilla to crash in certain
situations. This has been resolved in these updated packages.

* attempting to bind using an IPv6 address instead of a hostname, for
example, using the "ldapsearch -h [IPv6-address]" command, where
[IPv6-address] is the IPv6 address of the host running the LDAP server,
caused the following errors:

Bind Error: Local error
Bind Error: additional info: SASL(-1): generic failure: GSSAPI Error: An
invalid name was supplied (Hostname cannot be canonicalized)

This error has been resolved in these updated packages. Note, the mozldap
ldapsearch command found in the /usr/lib[64]/mozldap directory is not the
same as the OpenLDAP ldapsearch command found in the /usr/bin/ directory.

* a doublefree error in nsldapi_free_request has been resolved.

As well, these updated packages add the following enhancements:

* improved IPv6 support.

* updates mozldap to version 6.0.5.

All mozldap users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
resolve these issues and add these enhancements.
