Description Josh Bressers 2005-04-29 16:21:52 UTC
OpenLDAP 1.0 through 2.1.19, as used in Apple Mac OS 10.3.4 and 10.3.5 and
possibly other operating systems, may allow certain authentication schemes to
use hashed (crypt) passwords in the userPassword attribute as if they were
plaintext passwords, which allows remote attackers to re-use hashed passwords
without decrypting them.
