Red Hat Fedora Directory Server HTTP Unescaping Functions Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

Red Hat Directory Server is prone to a buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied data.

Attackers could exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code in the context of the affected application. Failed exploit attempts will likely cause denial-of-service conditions.

This issue affects only Directory Server as shipped with Red Hat Fedora. The issue was introduced in adminutils 1.1.6.
