Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-1106-1 ppp

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Marcus Meissner discovered that the winbind test in pppd does not
check whether a setuid() call has been successful when trying to drop
rights, which may fail with some PAM configurations.
The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.4.3-20050321+2sarge1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.4.4rel-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your ppp package.
