    openldap vulnerabilities
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    - Ubuntu 14.04 ESM
    - Ubuntu 12.04 ESM
    Several security issues were fixed in OpenLDAP.
    Software Description:
    - openldap: OpenLDAP utilities
    USN-4078-1 fixed several vulnerabilities in openldap. This update provides
    the corresponding update for Ubuntu 12.04 ESM and Ubuntu 14.04 ESM.
    Original advisory details:
     It was discovered that OpenLDAP incorrectly handled rootDN delegation. A
     database administrator could use this issue to request authorization as an
     identity from another database, contrary to expectations. (CVE-2019-13057)
     It was discovered that OpenLDAP incorrectly handled SASL authentication and
     session encryption. After a first SASL bind was completed, it was possible
     to obtain access by performing simple binds, contrary to expectations.
    Update instructions:
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    Ubuntu 14.04 ESM:
      slapd                           2.4.31-1+nmu2ubuntu8.5+esm1
    Ubuntu 12.04 ESM:
      slapd                           2.4.28-1.1ubuntu4.9
    In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
      CVE-2019-13057, CVE-2019-13565
