    Shayan Sadigh discovered a vulnerability in OpenSSH: If PAM support is
    enabled and the sshd PAM configuration is configured to read user-
    specified environment variables and the "UseLogin" option is enabled, a
    local user may escalate her privileges to root.
    
    In Debian "UseLogin" is not enabled by default.
