Synopsis
=======
The EAP-MSCHAPv2 module of FreeRADIUS is affected by a validation issue
which causes some authentication checks to be bypassed.

Background
=========
FreeRADIUS is an open source RADIUS authentication server
implementation.

Affected packages
================
     -------------------------------------------------------------------
      Package                /  Vulnerable  /                Unaffected
     -------------------------------------------------------------------
   1  net-dialup/freeradius       < 1.1.1                      >= 1.1.1
                                                                < 1.0.0

Description
==========
FreeRADIUS suffers from insufficient input validation in the
EAP-MSCHAPv2 state machine.

Impact
=====
An attacker could cause the server to bypass authentication checks by
manipulating the EAP-MSCHAPv2 client state machine.

Workaround
=========
There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
=========
All FreeRADIUS users should upgrade to the latest version:

     # emerge --sync
     # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-dialup/freeradius-1.1.1"
