Advisory: RHBA-2012:1303-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A

Details

Updated perl-LDAP packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

The perl-LDAP package provide a collection of modules that implements a LDAP
services API for Perl programs. The module may be used to search directories or
perform maintenance functions such as adding, deleting, or modifying entries.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, errors in LDAP communication occurred when the sent data was too
large. Consequently, user could not send data bigger than 15,000 bytes over SSL.
With this update, backported upstream patches have been provided, which modify
the syswrite() call to use smaller chunks of data passed to the IO::Socket::SSL
module, thus fixing this bug. (BZ#858699)

All users of perl-LDAP are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
fix this bug.
