    Updated freeradius packages fix security vulnerabilities:
    
    It was discovered freeradius does not correctly configure logrotate,
    allowing a local attacker who already has control of the radiusd user to
    escalate his privileges to root, by tricking logrotate into writing a
    radiusd-writable file to a directory normally inaccessible by the radiusd
     user (CVE-2019-10143).
    
    An information leak was discovered in the implementation of EAP-pwd in
    freeradius. An attacker could initiate several EAP-pwd handshakes to leak
    information, which can then be used to recover the user's WiFi password by
    performing dictionary and brute-force attacks (CVE-2019-13456).
    
    Denial of service issues due to multithreaded BN_CTX access
    (CVE-2019-17185).
