A remote attacker could issue a specially-crafted LDAP search query, which once processed by a vulnerable slapd server would lead to assertion failure (slapd abort). Upstream bug report:  http://www.openldap.org/its/index.cgi/Software%20Bugs?id=7143 Original upstream patch:  http://www.openldap.org/devel/gitweb.cgi?p=openldap.git;a=commit;h=ef2f5263de8802794e528cc2648ecfca369302ae Further patches:  http://www.openldap.org/devel/gitweb.cgi?p=openldap.git;a=commit;h=430256fafb85028443d7964a5ab1f4bbf8b2db38  http://www.openldap.org/devel/gitweb.cgi?p=openldap.git;a=commit;h=463c1fa25d45e393dc1f1ea235286f79e872fad0 References:  http://www.openldap.org/software/release/changes.html  https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=407941  https://secunia.com/advisories/48372/  https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=802514 Could you allocate a CVE identifier for this?
