Synopsis
========

The EAP-MSCHAPv2 module of FreeRADIUS is affected by a validation issue
which causes some authentication checks to be bypassed.

Background
==========

FreeRADIUS is an open source RADIUS authentication server
implementation.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package                /  Vulnerable  /                Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  net-dialup/freeradius       < 1.1.1                      >= 1.1.1
                                                               < 1.0.0

Description
===========

FreeRADIUS suffers from insufficient input validation in the
EAP-MSCHAPv2 state machine.

Impact
======

An attacker could cause the server to bypass authentication checks by
manipulating the EAP-MSCHAPv2 client state machine.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All FreeRADIUS users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-dialup/freeradius-1.1.1"
