This article applies to BoKS Manager 7.1.

 

Description

Case CAS-184728-J9L0P3. boks_servc crashed for one specific user with a must use ldap authenticator assigned.

 

Resolution / Workaround

Install the hotfix HFBM-0251 from the HelpSystems Community Portal.

The cause was a buffer that was allocated one byte too short. When the AUTHNAME in the ldap authenticator happened to fill the buffer returned by malloc exactly, the terminating nul character overwrote data used by malloc/free causing the free function to abort() and boks_servc to crash.
