928105: CVE-2013-1897 389-ds: unintended information exposure when rootdse is enabled

The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:

The do_search function in ldap/servers/slapd/search.c in 389 Directory Server 1.2.x before and 1.3.x before does not properly restrict access to entries when the nsslapd-allow-anonymous-access configuration is set to rootdse and the BASE search scope is used, which allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information outside of the rootDSE via a crafted LDAP search.
