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:

CAN-2004-1340

    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.

CAN-2005-0108

    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.
