Moderate severity vulnerability was found in pip python-ldap (pip) .
The LDAP schema parser of python-ldap 3.3.1 and earlier are vulnerable to a regular expression denial-of-service attack. The issue affects clients that use
ldap.schema package to parse LDAP schema definitions from an untrusted source.
The upcoming release of python-ldap 3.4.0 will contain a workaround to prevent ReDoS attacks. The schema parser refuses schema definitions with an excessive amount of backslashes.
As a workaround, users can check input for excessive amount of backslashes in schemas. More than a dozen backslashes per line are atypical.
