(PAM-MySQL: Multiple vulnerabilities)
A flaw in handling the result of pam_get_item() as well as further
unspecified flaws were discovered in PAM-MySQL.
By exploiting the mentioned flaws an attacker can cause a Denial of
Service and thus prevent users that authenticate against PAM-MySQL from
logging into a machine. There is also a possible additional attack
vector with more malicious impact that has not been confirmed yet.
There is no known workaround at this time.
