Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 592385
Update nss-pam-ldapd to 0.7.4 or later
Last modified: 2010-11-11 09:51:49 EST
Description of problem:
0.7.3 contains a buffer overflow bug which is not expected to be exploitable, but 0.7.4 also adds an nss_initgroups_ignoreusers option, which would be useful in situations where there's no caching being done (per #587306).
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux major release. Product Management has requested further
review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux Major release. This request is not yet committed for
I don't think we do anything with the reconnect_sleeptime and reconnect_maxsleeptime settings, but the reconnect_maxsleeptime is also renamed to reconnect_retrytime in 0.7.4. The other user-visible changes should be in the accompanying PAM module, which we don't package (at least, not yet).
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0 is now available and should resolve
the problem described in this bug report. This report is therefore being closed
with a resolution of CURRENTRELEASE. You may reopen this bug report if the
solution does not work for you.
