Package : shadow
Debian Bug : 862806

The update for the shadow suite issued as DSA-3793-1 introduced a
regression in su signal handling. If su receives a signal like SIGTERM,
it is not propagated to the child. Updated packages are now available to
correct this issue.

For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
version 1:4.2-3+deb8u4.

We recommend that you upgrade your shadow packages.
