Debian Security Advisory DSA 790-1 security@debian.org

Package : phpldapadmin
Vulnerability : programming error
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2005-2654
Debian Bug : 322423

Alexander Gerasiov discovered that phpldapadmin, a web based interface
for administering LDAP servers, allows anybody to access the LDAP
server anonymously, even if this is disabled in the configuration with
the "disable_anon_bind" statement.

The old stable distribution (woody) is not vulnerable to this problem.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.5-3sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.6c-5.

We recommend that you upgrade your phpldapadmin package.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.

its next update.
