Mandrake MDKSA-2003:088: pam_ldap

by Nikola Strahija on September 2nd, 2003 A bug was fixed in pam_ldap 162 with the pam_filter mechanism which is commonly used for host-based access restriction in environments using LDAP for authentication. Systems relying on pam_filter for host-based access restriction would allow any user, regardless of the host attribute associated with their account, to log into the system.

Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
__________________________________________________________________

Package name: pam_ldap
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2003:088
Date: September 2nd, 2003

Affected versions: 9.1
__________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A bug was fixed in pam_ldap 162 with the pam_filter mechanism which is
commonly used for host-based access restriction in environments using
LDAP for authentication. Mandrake Linux 9.1 provided pam_ldap 161
which had this problem and as a result, systems relying on pam_filter
for host-based access restriction would allow any user, regardless of
the host attribute associated with their account, to log into the
system. All users who use LDAP-based authentication are encouraged to
upgrade immediately.
