Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Moderate: 389-ds-base security, bug fix, and enhancement update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2016:2594-02
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL:
Issue date: 2016-11-03
CVE Names: CVE-2016-4992 CVE-2016-5405 CVE-2016-5416

1. Summary:

An update for 389-ds-base is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which
gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from
the CVE link(s) in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Client Optional (v. 7) – x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ComputeNode Optional (v. 7) – x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 7) – aarch64, ppc64le, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server Optional (v. 7) – aarch64, ppc64le, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 7) – x86_64

3. Description:

389 Directory Server is an LDAP version 3 (LDAPv3) compliant server. The
base packages include the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)
server and command-line utilities for server administration.

The following packages have been upgraded to a newer upstream version:
389-ds-base ( (BZ#1270020)

Security Fix(es):

* It was found that 389 Directory Server was vulnerable to a flaw in which
the default ACI (Access Control Instructions) could be read by an anonymous
user. This could lead to leakage of sensitive information. (CVE-2016-5416)

* An information disclosure flaw was found in 389 Directory Server. A user
with no access to objects in certain LDAP sub-tree could send LDAP ADD
operations with a specific object name. The error message returned to the
user was different based on whether the target object existed or not.

* It was found that 389 Directory Server was vulnerable to a remote
password disclosure via timing attack. A remote attacker could possibly use
this flaw to retrieve directory server password after many tries.

The CVE-2016-5416 issue was discovered by Viktor Ashirov (Red Hat); the
CVE-2016-4992 issue was discovered by Petr Spacek (Red Hat) and Martin
Basti (Red Hat); and the CVE-2016-5405 issue was discovered by William
Brown (Red Hat).

Additional Changes:

For detailed information on changes in this release, see the Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 7.3 Release Notes linked from the References section.

4. Solution:

For details on how to apply this update, which includes the changes
described in this advisory, refer to:

After installing this update, the 389 server service will be restarted
