    Package        : libpam-ldap
    Vulnerability  : programming error
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-5170
    Debian Bug     : 392984
    Steve Rigler discovered that the PAM module for authentication against
    LDAP servers processes PasswordPolicyReponse control messages incorrectly,
    which might lead to an attacker being able to login into a suspended
    system account.
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 178-1sarge3. Due to technical problems with the security
    buildd infrastructure this update lacks a build for the Sun Sparc
    architecture. It will be released as soon as the problems are resolved.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 180-1.2.
    We recommend that you upgrade your libpam-ldap package.
