    Package        : libpam-radius-auth
    Version        : 1.3.16-5+deb9u1
    CVE ID         : CVE-2015-9542
    Debian Bug     : 951396
    
    
    `add_password` in pam_radius_auth.c in pam_radius 1.4.0 does not
    correctly check the length of the input password, and is vulnerable
    to a stack-based buffer overflow during memcpy(). An attacker could
    send a crafted password to an application (loading the pam_radius
    library) and crash it. Arbitrary code execution might be possible,
    depending on the application, C library, compiler, and other factors.
    
    For Debian 9 stretch, this problem has been fixed in version
    1.3.16-5+deb9u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libpam-radius-auth packages.
