Lbspring-ldap-java Security Update for Debian 7 LTS

Package : libspring-ldap-java
Version : 1.3.1.RELEASE-4+deb7u1
CVE ID : CVE-2017-8028

Tobias Schneider discovered that Spring-LDAP would allow authentication
with an arbitrary password when the username is correct, no additional
attributes are bound and when using LDAP BindAuthenticator with
DefaultTlsDirContextAuthenticationStrategy as the authentication
strategy and setting userSearch. This occurs because some LDAP vendors
require an explicit operation for the LDAP bind to take effect.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your libspring-ldap-java packages.
