Debian Security Advisory DSA 659-1                                        Martin Schulze

Package        : libpam-radius-auth
Vulnerability  : information leak, integer underflow
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2004-1340 CAN-2005-0108

Two problems have been discovered in the libpam-radius-auth package,
the PAM RADIUS authentication module.  The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures Project identifies the following problems:


    The Debian package accidently installed its configuration file
    /etc/pam_radius_auth.conf world-readable.  Since it may possibly
    contain secrets all local users are able to read them if the
    administrator hasn't adjusted file permissions.  This problem is
    Debian specific.


    Leon Juranic discoverd an integer underflow in the mod_auth_radius
    module for Apache which is also present in libpam-radius-auth.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.3.14-1.3.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.3.16-3.

We recommend that you upgrade your libpam-radius-auth package.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
