Updated perl-LDAP packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The perl-LDAP package provide a collection of modules that implements a LDAP services API for Perl programs. The module may be used to search directories or perform maintenance functions such as adding, deleting, or modifying entries.
Previously, errors in LDAP communication occurred when the sent data was too large. Consequently, user could not send data bigger than 15,000 bytes over SSL. With this update, backported upstream patches have been provided, which modify the syswrite() call to use smaller chunks of data passed to the IO::Socket::SSL module, thus fixing this bug.
All users of perl-LDAP are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
