Description Steve Grubb 2005-10-12 17:55:22 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
We need pam_tally to emit an audit record when it locks an account.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. do bad logins
2. look in audit records after account is locked

Actual Results:  No records other than mod to passwd file. This doesn't tell what account was affected.

Additional info:

I will provide a patch to provide this capability. This should be a very short patch 5-6 lines of code. open audit socket, send message, close socket.

patch adding extra audit messages to pam_tally

This is the current patch that I'm testing against rawhide. It will require
audit-libs >= 1.0.9 since the audit daemon doesn't understand the message type.
