How to fix?

Upgrade Debian:10 openldap to version 2.4.25-1 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.

bind.cpp in back-ndb in OpenLDAP 2.4.x before 2.4.24 does not require authentication for the root Distinguished Name (DN), which allows remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions via an arbitrary password.
