Some vulnerabilities have been reported in Sun Java System Directory Server, which can be exploited by malicious people to gain knowledge of potentially sensitive information or cause a DoS (Denial of Service).
1) An error in Directory Proxy Server may cause a client operation to temporarily run with another client's privileges.
2) An error in Directory Proxy Server can be exploited via specially crafted packets to cause the service to stop responding to new client connections.
3) An error in Directory Proxy Server can be exploited via a specially crafted "psearch" client to exhaust available CPU resources, preventing the server from sending results to other "psearch" clients.
