    It was discovered that pam-python, a PAM Module that runs the Python
    interpreter, has an issue in regard to the default environment variable
    handling of Python. This issue could allow for local root escalation in certain
    PAM setups.
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
    1.0.4-1.1+deb8u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your pam-python packages.
