The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2007:0430.

OpenLDAP is an open source suite of LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access
Protocol) applications, libraries and development tools.

A flaw was found in the way OpenLDAP handled selfwrite access. Users with
selfwrite access were able to modify the distinguished name of any user.
