    Leigh James that discovered that nss-ldapd, an NSS module for using
    LDAP as a naming service, by default creates the configuration file
    /etc/nss-ldapd.conf world-readable which could leak the configured
    LDAP password if one is used for connecting to the LDAP server.
    
    The old stable distribution (etch) doesn't contain nss-ldapd.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.6.7.1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.6.8.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your nss-ldapd package.
