Mandriva: Updated util-linux packages address login access Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake Th login in util-linux-2.12a (and later versions) skips pam_acct_mgmt and chauth_tok when authentication is skipped, such as when a Kerberos krlogin session has been established, which might allow users to bypass intended access policies that would be enforced by pam_acct_mgmt and chauth_tok. Updated packages have been patched to address this issue.
