    Garth Mollett discovered that a file descriptor overflow issue in the
    use of FD_SET() in nss-pam-ldapd, which provides NSS and PAM modules for
    using LDAP as a naming service, can lead to a stack-based buffer
    overflow. An attacker could, under some circumstances, use this flaw to
    cause a process that has the NSS or PAM module loaded to crash or
    potentially execute arbitrary code.
