Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA1203] DSA-1203-1 libpam-ldap

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-1203-1 libpam-ldap

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Steve Rigler discovered that the PAM module for authentication against
LDAP servers processes PasswordPolicyReponse control messages incorrectly,
which might lead to a possible hacker being able to login into a suspended
system account.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 178-1sarge3. Due to technical problems with the security
buildd infrastructure this update lacks a build for the Sun Sparc
architecture. It will be released as soon as the problems are resolved.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 180-1.2.
We recommend that you upgrade your libpam-ldap package.
