OpenLDAP is an open source suite of Lightweight Directory Access Protocol
(LDAP) applications and development tools. LDAP is a set of protocols for
accessing directory services.

A denial of service flaw was found in the way the OpenLDAP slapd daemon

could send a specially crafted request that would crash the slapd daemon.
(CVE-2008-2952)

Users of openldap should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch to correct this issue.
