Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 3127
pam_securetty misrecognize the tty that the user is logging in from
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:50 EDT
When logging in from unix98 ptys, pam_securetty looks in
/etc/securetty to see if that terminal is allowed. The
module looks at the part of the device after the last '/' to
match against the entry in /dev. If users add 'pts/1' to
/etc/securetty this will not work. The user must add '1' to
/etc/securetty as pam_securetty looks at only the part after
the last '/'.
This issue has been forwarded to a developer for further action.
Fixed in the current package from rawhide
