Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:201: pam_ldap

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the pam_ldap package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:201 (pam_ldap).

Pam_ldap does not return an error condition when an LDAP directory
server responds with a PasswordPolicyResponse control response, which
causes the pam_authenticate function to return a success code even if
authentication has failed, as originally reported for xscreensaver.
This might lead to a possible hacker being able to login into a suspended
system account.
Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
