NVD Description

Note: Versions mentioned in the description apply to the upstream openldap package.

slapd in OpenLDAP 2.4.45 and earlier creates a PID file after dropping privileges to a non-root account, which might allow local users to kill arbitrary processes by leveraging access to this non-root account for PID file modification before a root script executes a "kill cat /pathname" command, as demonstrated by openldap-initscript.
