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.
