    Package        : libpam-radius-auth
    Vulnerability  : information leak, integer underflow
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2004-1340 CAN-2005-0108
    
    Two problems have been discovered in the libpam-radius-auth package,
    the PAM RADIUS authentication module.  The Common Vulnerabilities and
    Exposures Project identifies the following problems:
    
    CAN-2004-1340
    
        The Debian package accidently installed its configuration file
        /etc/pam_radius_auth.conf world-readable.  Since it may possibly
        contain secrets all local users are able to read them if the
        administrator hasn't adjusted file permissions.  This problem is
        Debian specific.
    
    CAN-2005-0108
    
        Leon Juranic discoverd an integer underflow in the mod_auth_radius
        module for Apache which is also present in libpam-radius-auth.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.3.14-1.3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.3.16-3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libpam-radius-auth package.
