A flaw in phpLDAPadmin may allow attackers to bypass security restrictions and connect anonymously.
|Package||net-nds/phpldapadmin on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 0.9.7_alpha6|
|Unaffected versions||>= 0.9.7_alpha6|
phpLDAPadmin is a web-based LDAP client allowing to easily manage LDAP servers.
Alexander Gerasiov discovered a flaw in login.php preventing the application from validating whether anonymous bind has been disabled in the target LDAP server configuration.
Anonymous users can access the LDAP server, even if the "disable_anon_bind" parameter was explicitly set to avoid this.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All phpLDAPadmin users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-nds/phpldapadmin-0.9.7_alpha6"
