A vulnerability in the handling of normalization with modrdn was discovered in OpenLDAP, a free implementation of the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol. An unauthenticated remote attacker can use this flaw to cause a denial of service (slapd daemon crash) via a specially crafted packet.
For Debian 9 stretch, this problem has been fixed in version 2.4.44+dfsg-5+deb9u5.
We recommend that you upgrade your openldap packages.
