 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2008:049
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________
 
 Package : nss_ldap
 Date    : February 25, 2008
 Affected: 2007.0, Corporate 4.0
 _______________________________________________________________________
 
 Problem Description:
 
 A race condition in nss_ldap, when used in applications that use
 pthread and fork after a call to nss_ldap, does not properly handle the
 LDAP connection, which might cause nss_ldap to return the wrong user
 data to the wrong process, giving one user access to data belonging
 to another user, in some cases.
 
 The updated package hais been patched to prevent this issue.
