Overview

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Reachable Assertion. In OpenLDAP through 2.4.57 and 2.5.x through 2.5.1alpha, an assertion failure in slapd can occur in the issuerAndThisUpdateCheck function via a crafted packet, resulting in a denial of service (daemon exit) via a short timestamp. This is related to schema_init.c and checkTime.

Remediation

Upgrade openldap to version or higher.
