    Package        : libpam-ldap
    Vulnerability  : authentication bypass
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-2641
    CERT advisory  : VU#778916
    
    It has been discovered that libpam-ldap, the Pluggable Authentication
    Module allowing LDAP interfaces, ignores the result of an attempt to
    authenticate against an LDAP server that does not set an optional data
    field.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 178-1sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 178-1sarge1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libpam-ldap package.
