Package : libpam-ldap
Vulnerability : authentication bypass
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2005-2641
CERT advisory : VU#778916

It has been discovered that libpam-ldap, the Pluggable Authentication
Module allowing LDAP interfaces, ignores the result of an attempt to
authenticate against an LDAP server that does not set an optional data
field.

The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 178-1sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 178-1sarge1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libpam-ldap package.
