Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2013:0134 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Low: freeradius2 security and bug fix update 2013-01-08 09:44:45 UTC

Description Vincent Danen 2012-11-21 22:34:52 UTC
When FreeRADIUS is configured to use the 'unix' module and shadow passwords, the password expiration field is ignored.  This could allow a user with an expired password to authenticate against FreeRADIUS.

This was corrected upstream:

https://github.com/alandekok/freeradius-server/commit/1b1ec5ce75e224bd1755650c18ccdaa6dc53e605

And was also corrected in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 via RHBA-2012:0881:
