Advisory: RHBA-2013:0251-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2013-02-12
Last updated on: 2013-02-12

Details

Updated nss_ldap packages that fix a bug are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

The nss_ldap packages contain the nss_ldap and pam_ldap modules. The nss_ldap
module is a name service switch module, which allows applications to retrieve
information about users and groups from a directory server. The pam_ldap module
allows a directory server to be used by PAM-aware applications to verify user
passwords.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Due to LDAP connectivity problems, the nss_ldap module returned error
conditions but failed to clean them up. Consequently, nss_ldap started leaking
file descriptors, namely sockets. A patch has been provided to address this bug
and the socket leaks no longer occur in nss_ldap. (BZ#905908)

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