 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDKSA-2005:200
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________
 
 Package : apache-mod_auth_shadow
 Date    : October 27, 2005
 Affected: 10.1, 10.2, 2006.0
 _______________________________________________________________________
 
 Problem Description:
 
 The mod_auth_shadow module 1.0 through 1.5 and 2.0 for Apache with 
 AuthShadow enabled uses shadow authentication for all locations that
 use the require group directive, even when other authentication
 mechanisms are specified, which might allow remote authenticated users
 to bypass security restrictions.
 
 This update requires an explicit "AuthShadow on" statement if website 
 authentication should be checked against /etc/shadow.
 
 The updated packages have been patched to address this issue.
