Description Wayne Pollock 2005-03-24 12:41:55 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050317 Firefox/1.0.2

Description of problem:
This PAM module is used in the default "system-auth" PAM configuration
file.  Every login attempt gets logged with this module as
a "authpriv" event, priority unknown.  However this is the behavior
expected if the "debug" module argument was used, not if it is omitted.
There doesn't seem to be any way to stop this module from reporting these

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. log in as a non-system account (UID > 100)
2. Examine /var/log/secure and observe log message


Actual Results:  Mar 24 13:19:11 cws sshd[22657]: pam_succeed_if: requirement "uid < 100" not met by user "wpollock"

Expected Results:  No log message, as the "debug" argument is not passed to the module

Additional info:

/etc/pam.d/system-auth line:

account     sufficient    /lib/security/$ISA/pam_succeed_if.so uid < 100
Comment 1 Tomas Mraz 2005-03-24 13:04:41 EST
This doesn't have anything with the debug parameter. This syslog message can be
useful not only for debugging however in other cases (like this usage in the
default system-auth) it's superfluous. This is fixed in current FC3 pam.
