Hello Kurt, Steve, vendors,

  Noriko Hosoi of Red Hat notified us about the following deficiency:

A possibility to bypass access control list (ACL) definitions was found
in the way 389 Directory Server performed LDAP modifyRDN operation upon
request from client. When a user has been granted access to set of DN
entries, but denied access to a specific subset of those entries, it
was possible the user to obtain temporary (till next Directory Server
restart) access to that subset of entries (they should not have had
otherwise ability to access) when the DN entry was moved via database
modify RDN function.

Upstream ticket:

Relevant upstream patch:
[2] http://git.fedorahosted.org/cgit/389/ds.git/commit/?id=5beb93d42efb807838c09c5fab898876876f8d09

Could you allocate a CVE id for this?

Thank you && Regards, Jan.
