______________________________________________________________________________

1)  problem description, brief discussion, solution, upgrade information

    OpenLDAP is the Open Source implementation of the Lightweight Directory
    Access Protocol (LDAP) and is used in network environments for distributing
    certain information such as X.509 certificates or login information.

    The SuSE Security Team reviewed critical parts of that package and found
    several buffer overflows and other bugs remote attackers could exploit
    to gain access on systems running vulnerable LDAP servers.
    In addition to these bugs, various local exploitable bugs within the
    OpenLDAP2 libraries (openldap2-devel package) have been fixed.

    Since there is no workaround possible except shutting down the LDAP server,
    we strongly recommend an update.

    Please download the update package for your distribution and verify its
    integrity by the methods listed in section 3) of this announcement.
    Then, install the package using the command "rpm -Fhv file.rpm" to apply
    the update.
    Our maintenance customers are being notified individually. The packages
    are being offered to install from the maintenance web.

    To be sure the update takes effect you have to restart the LDAP server
    by executing the following command as root:

        /etc/rc.d/ldap restart

2)  Pending vulnerabilities in SuSE Distributions and Workarounds:

    - traceroute-nanog
    Due to recent postings on bugtraq () securityfocus com new
    traceroute-nanog packages are currently being built and
    will be released as soon as possible.

    - gnuplot
    An error in a patch for french documentation added by SuSE leads to a
    buffer overflow in gnuplot that can be exploited to gain root
    privileges by a local attacker. gnuplot is installed setuid root on
    SuSE Linux before (excluding) 8.0 to be able to display graphics with
    the SVGA library. We have provided update packages at the usual
    location that fix the vulnerability.

______________________________________________________________________________

3)  standard appendix: authenticity verification, additional information

  - Package authenticity verification:

    SuSE update packages are available on many mirror ftp servers all over
    the world. While this service is being considered valuable and important
    to the free and open source software community, many users wish to be
    sure about the origin of the package and its content before installing
    the package. There are two verification methods that can be used
    independently from each other to prove the authenticity of a downloaded
    file or rpm package:
    1) md5sums as provided in the (cryptographically signed) announcement.
    2) using the internal gpg signatures of the rpm package.

    1) execute the command
        md5sum <name-of-the-file.rpm>
       after you downloaded the file from a SuSE ftp server or its mirrors.
       Then, compare the resulting md5sum with the one that is listed in the
       announcement. Since the announcement containing the checksums is
       cryptographically signed (usually using the key security () suse de),
       the checksums show proof of the authenticity of the package.
       We disrecommend to subscribe to security lists which cause the
       email message containing the announcement to be modified so that
       the signature does not match after transport through the mailing
       list software.
       Downsides: You must be able to verify the authenticity of the
       announcement in the first place. If RPM packages are being rebuilt
       and a new version of a package is published on the ftp server, all
       md5 sums for the files are useless.

    2) rpm package signatures provide an easy way to verify the authenticity
       of an rpm package. Use the command
        rpm -v --checksig <file.rpm>
       to verify the signature of the package, where <file.rpm> is the
       filename of the rpm package that you have downloaded. Of course,
       package authenticity verification can only target an un-installed rpm
       package file.
       Prerequisites:
        a) gpg is installed
        b) The package is signed using a certain key. The public part of this
           key must be installed by the gpg program in the directory
           ~/.gnupg/ under the user's home directory who performs the
           signature verification (usually root). You can import the key
           that is used by SuSE in rpm packages for SuSE Linux by saving
           this announcement to a file ("announcement.txt") and
           running the command (do "su -" to be root):
            gpg --batch; gpg < announcement.txt | gpg --import
           SuSE Linux distributions version 7.1 and thereafter install the
           key "build () suse de" upon installation or upgrade, provided that
           the package gpg is installed. The file containing the public key
           is placed at the top-level directory of the first CD (pubring.gpg)
           and at ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/pubring.gpg-build.suse.de .
