RedHat Linux Updated PAM packages are now available for Red Hat Linux 6.x and 7.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
                   Red Hat, Inc. Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Updated PAM packages available.
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2000:120-04
Issue date:        2000-11-29
Updated on:        2000-12-01
Product:           Red Hat Linux
Keywords:          PAM
Cross references:  N/A
---------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Topic:

Updated PAM packages are now available for Red Hat Linux 6.x and 7.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 6.0 - i386, alpha, sparc
Red Hat Linux 6.1 - i386, alpha, sparc
Red Hat Linux 6.2 - i386, alpha, sparc
Red Hat Linux 6.2EE - i386, alpha, sparc
Red Hat Linux 7.0 - i386, alpha
Red Hat Linux 7.0J - i386, alpha

3. Problem description:

Red Hat Linux 7 and a previous PAM errata issued for Red Hat Linux 6.x both
included a new module, pam_localuser.  Although this module is not used in
any default configurations, the version included was vulnerable to a buffer
overflow.  These updates remove this vulnerability and fix various other
bugs.

4. Solution:

For each RPM for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filename]

where filename is the name of the RPM.

5. Bug IDs fixed  (http://bugzilla.Red Hat.com/bugzilla for more info):

14740 - pam_cracklib: 'similiar()' broken
16456 - files missing from pam-0.72-20
18055 - Passwords can't be changed
20542 - PAM doesn't set RLIMIT_LOCKS when compiled against glibc-2.2 headers
21467 - /etc/security/access.conf error in example
