Debian DLA-3108-1 : pcs - LTS security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 165224


The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


The remote Debian 10 host has packages installed that are affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the dla-3108 advisory.

- A flaw was found in the Pacemaker configuration tool (pcs). The pcs daemon was allowing expired accounts, and accounts with expired passwords to login when using PAM authentication. Therefore, unprivileged expired accounts that have been denied access could still login. (CVE-2022-1049)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade the pcs packages.

For Debian 10 buster, this problem has been fixed in version 0.10.1-2+deb10u1.
