Package        : ldapscripts
Vulnerability  : programming error
Problem type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2007-5373 
Debian Bug     : 445582

Don Armstrong discovered that ldapscripts, a suite of tools to manipulate
user accounts in LDAP, sends the password as a command line argument when
calling LDAP programs, which may allow a local attacker to read this password
from the process listing.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
1.4-2etch1.

The old stable distribution (sarge) does not contain an ldapscripts package.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version
1.7.1-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your ldapscripts package.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
