( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Still a good question!
The main reason (although it is not obvious from the code) is that there are many OUs beneath the userbase DN, for reasons too lengthy to explain here. Hence I cannot explicitly bind the given user as

$ldap->bind( "cn=$user,".$self->{ldap}{userbase} , password=>$password )
Since that user may be in any of a number of sub OUs to the userbase. I admit that there was much "umm" and "err" about using an anonymous bind to find the user entry, then rebind with that DN and the supplied password. The directory in question is accessible only from 127.0.0.1 , and it is not involved in any way in storing system accounts. My concerns about userPassword hashes being stolen are largely moot, if they can only be accessed locally, if a malicious user is already local - I have more problems than them having anon read access to LDAP!.

Please post some code if you can, or in the least read/comment my meditation that more fully explains what I am stabbing in the dark at.


I can't believe it's not psellchecked

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
