CVE: CVE-2014-8105 , CVE-2014-8112
An information disclosure flaw was found in the way the 389 Directory Server stored information in the Changelog that is exposed via the 'cn=changelog' LDAP sub-tree. An unauthenticated user could in certain cases use this flaw to read data from the Changelog, which could include sensitive information such as plain-text passwords (CVE-2014-8105). It was found that when the nsslapd-unhashed-pw-switch 389 Directory Server configuration option was set to "off", it did not prevent the writing of unhashed passwords into the Changelog. This could potentially allow an authenticated user able to access the Changelog to read sensitive information (CVE-2014-8112).
