Removing security-sensitive tag as this issue is public.

RHSA-2004:609 in progress which will update FreeRADIUS to version
1.0.1 and also fix:

127168 - rebuilding freeradius picks up system libeap rather than
package libeap
127162 - zlib-devel is missing from BuildRequires in spec file
130606 - Missing buildrequires in freediag
130613 - radiusd.conf specifies other pam-auth than file installed in
