Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : pam_ldap (MDKSA-2003:088)

This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

A bug was fixed in pam_ldap 162 with the pam_filter mechanism which is
commonly used for host-based access restriction in environments using
LDAP for authentication. Mandrake Linux 9.1 provided pam_ldap 161
which had this problem and as a result, systems relying on pam_filter
for host-based access restriction would allow any user, regardless of
the host attribute associated with their account, to log into the
system. All users who use LDAP-based authentication are encouraged to
upgrade immediately.

Solution :

Update the affected nss_ldap and / or pam_ldap packages.

Risk factor :

Critical / CVSS Base Score : 10.0
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)
