Description Nalin Dahyabhai 2010-05-14 18:05:13 UTC
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).

Comment 2 Nalin Dahyabhai 2010-05-14 18:22:08 UTC
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).
