How to fix?

Upgrade Debian:10 openldap to version 2.4.42+dfsg-2 or higher.

NVD Description

Note: Versions mentioned in the description apply to the upstream openldap package. See How to fix? for Debian:10 relevant versions.

The ber_get_next function in libraries/liblber/io.c in OpenLDAP 2.4.42 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (reachable assertion and application crash) via crafted BER data, as demonstrated by an attack against slapd.
