Fedora 9 Update: nss_ldap-264-1.fc9



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2009-1090
2009-01-29 22:30:07
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : nss_ldap
Product     : Fedora 9
Version     : 264
Release     : 1.fc9
URL         : http://www.padl.com/
Summary     : NSS library and PAM module for LDAP
Description :
This package includes two LDAP access clients: nss_ldap and pam_ldap.
Nss_ldap is a set of C library extensions that allow X.500 and LDAP
directory servers to be used as a primary source of aliases, ethers,
groups, hosts, networks, protocol, users, RPCs, services, and shadow
passwords (instead of or in addition to using flat files or NIS).

Pam_ldap is a module for Linux-PAM that supports password changes, V2
clients, Netscape's SSL, ypldapd, Netscape Directory Server password
policies, access authorization, and crypted hashes.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This update resolves a bug in a local patch to nss_ldap which caused service
resolution to return incorrect port numbers, correctly fails when an application
calls setnetgrent() for a netgroup which doesn't exist, handles the end of
enumeration correctly, and fixes a possible crash in pam_ldap which could occur
while chasing referrals using SASL authentication.
