FWIW, I discussed this issue with Kurt Seifried and we believe it would be hardening fix, not a CVE-named issue. It seems this flaw could let you accidentally connect to an LDAP server without a password, but the flaw in this scenario is in the LDAP server, and this fix helps prevent you from doing that. Some further explanations about this are available in http://securitysynapse.blogspot.ca/2013/09/dangers-of-ldap-null-base-and-bind.html Cheers, -- Murray McAllister / Red Hat Security Response Team
