389-ds-base: remote Denial of Service (DoS) via search filters in 
SetUnicodeStringFromUTF_8 in collate.c

A flaw was found in 389 Directory Server that affects all versions. An
improper handling of the search feature with an extended filter, when
read access on <attribute_name> is enabled, in SetUnicodeStringFromUTF_8
function in collate.c, can lead to out-of-bounds memory operations. This
may allow a remote unauthenticated attacker to trigger a server crash,
thus resulting in denial of service.
