The 389-ds-base packages provide 389 Directory Server, which is an LDAPv3
compliant server. The base packages include the Lightweight Directory
Access Protocol (LDAP) server and command-line utilities for server

A flaw was found in the way 389 Directory Server enforced ACLs after
performing an LDAP modify relative distinguished name (modrdn) operation.
After modrdn was used to move part of a tree, the ACLs defined on the moved
(Distinguished Name) were not properly enforced until the server was
restarted. This could allow LDAP users to access information that should be
restricted by the defined ACLs. (CVE-2012-4450)

This issue was discovered by Noriko Hosoi of Red Hat.

These updated 389-ds-base packages include numerous bug fixes and
