    A vulnerability was found in pam_radius: the password length check was
    done incorrectly in the add_password() function in pam_radius_auth.c,
    resulting in a stack based buffer overflow.
    
    This could be used to crash (DoS) an application using the PAM stack
    for authentication.
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
    1.3.16-4.4+deb8u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libpam-radius-auth packages.
