The remote host is missing an update for the '389-ds-base'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
The 389 Directory Server is an LDAPv3 compliant server. The base packages
include the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) server and
command-line utilities for server administration.
It was discovered that the 389 Directory Server did not properly handle the
receipt of certain MOD operations with a bogus Distinguished Name (DN). A
remote, unauthenticated attacker could use this flaw to cause the 389
Directory Server to crash. (CVE-2013-4283)
All 389-ds-base users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain a backported patch to correct this issue. After installing
this update, the 389 server service will be restarted automatically.
