PATCH: properly deal with crypt() returning NULL
Last modified: 2012-04-23 21:16:47 EDT
the crypt() call can return NULL in some error conditions. One of those is when the computer is running in FIPS mode and an MD5 or DES hash is requested.
Attached patch fixes the direct/indirect calls to crypt() where it is not checked for NULL before being used in operations as strchr() or strcmp()
