The remote host is missing an update for the '389-ds-base'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
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.

An information disclosure flaw was found in the way the 389 Directory
Server stored information in the Changelog that is exposed via the
'cn=changelog' LDAP sub-tree. An unauthenticated user could in certain
cases use this flaw to read data from the Changelog, which could include
sensitive information such as plain-text passwords.

It was found that when the nsslapd-unhashed-pw-switch 389 Directory Server
configuration option was set to 'off', it did not prevent the writing of
unhashed passwords into the Changelog. This could potentially allow an
authenticated user able to access the Changelog to read sensitive
information. (CVE-2014-8112)

The CVE-2014-8105 issue was discovered by Petr paek of the Red Hat
Identity Management Engineering Team, and the CVE-2014-8112 issue was
discovered by Ludwig Krispenz of the Red Hat Identity Management
Engineering Team.


* Added new WinSync configuration parameters: winSyncSubtreePair for

attributes to the directory server using the range retrieval. (BZ#1044149)

Synchronization Operation LDAP standards has been added. (BZ#1044139,

* The Referential Integrity (referint) plug-in can now use an alternate
configuration area. The PlugInArg plug-in configuration now uses unique
configuration attributes. Configuration changes no longer require a server
restart. (BZ#1044203)

* The log analysis tool now supports gzip, bzip2, and xz
compressed files and also TAR archives and compressed TAR archives of these
files. (BZ#1044188)
