Description

LSAC(v2)
The mozldap packages provide the Mozilla LDAP C SDK libraries that allow applications to communicate with Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) directory servers. These libraries are derived from the University of Michigan and Netscape LDAP libraries and use Mozilla NSPR and NSS for crypto. This update fixes the following bug: * Prior to this update, the ldapsearch tool could, under certain circumstances, access or free uninitialized memory when following a smart referral entry using anonymous credentials. As a consequence, the ldapsearch tool could encounter a segmentation fault. This update ensures that the memory is initialized. Now, ldapsearch works with anonymous credentials as expected. (BZ#753014) All users of mozldap are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
