GENTOO LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT 200210-013
- - --------------------------------------------------------------------

PACKAGE : pam_ldap
SUMMARY : format string attack
DATE    : 2002-10-30 22:10 UTC
EXPLOIT : local

- - --------------------------------------------------------------------

Versions 143 and earlier of the pam_ldap module are vulnerable to a 
format string attack. A local attacker could supply a malicious 
format string when opening a configuration file, which could allow 
the attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system with elevated 
privileges.

SOLUTION

It is recommended that all Gentoo Linux users who are running
net-libs/pam_ldap-134-r1 and earlier update their systems as follows:

emerge rsync
emerge pam_ldap
emerge clean
