Red Hat: Updated openldap packages fix a security issue

OpenLDAP is an open source suite of Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) applications and development tools. LDAP is a set of protocols for accessing directory services. A denial of service flaw was found in the way the OpenLDAP slapd daemon processed certain network messages. An unauthenticated remote attacker could send a specially crafted request that would crash the slapd daemon. Fixed packages are available from updates.redhat.com.
