Debian Security Advisory
DLA-3284-1 libapache-session-ldap-perl -- LTS security update
- Date Reported:
- 28 Jan 2023
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2020-36658.
- More information:
In Apache::Session::LDAP before 0.5, validity of the X.509 certificate is not checked by default when connecting to remote LDAP backends, because the default configuration of the Net::LDAPS module for Perl is used.
This update changes the default behavior to require X.509 validation against the distribution bundle
/etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt. Previous behavior can reverted by setting
ldapVerify => "none"when initializing the Apache::Session::LDAP object.
Note: this update is a prerequisite for LemonLDAP::NG's CVE-2020-16093 fix when its session backend is set to Apache::Session::LDAP.
For Debian 10 buster, this problem has been fixed in version 0.4-1+deb10u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your libapache-session-ldap-perl packages.
