LDAP Injection is a server-side attack, which exploits web applications that construct LDAP statements based on user input, allowing attackers to manipulate LDAP queries.

Notable Incidents

  1. No widely publicized specific incidents due to the technical nature and specific contexts in which LDAP injection could be exploited.
  2. General awareness and mitigation techniques have prevented large-scale publicized incidents.

How to Protect Your Network against LDAP Injection
