SA Document Body
Security Vulnerability in Sun Java System Directory Proxy Server 
May Grant Unauthorized Administrative Access

1. Impact

A security vulnerability in the Sun Java System Directory Proxy Server may allow a remote unprivileged user to gain unauthorized administrative access to the server. This is caused by the server incorrectly classifying a connection based on the "bind-dn" criteria, resulting in an incorrect policy being applied.

2. Contributing Factors

This issue can occur in the following releases for all platforms (Solaris 8, 9, and 10 SPARC and x86 Platforms, Linux, Windows, and HP-UX):
  • Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.0, 6.1 and 6.2
Note: Directory Proxy Server 5.2 is not impacted by this issue.


To determine if the Directory Server running on a system is affected, the following command can be used:

$ dpadm -V

If the output contains the version string 6.0, 6.1 or 6.2, the system is affected by this issue.
