Description msiddiqu 2019-02-11 11:49:30 UTC
An issue was discovered in gsi-openssh-server 7.9p1 on Fedora 29. If PermitPAMUserChange is set to yes in the /etc/gsissh/sshd_config file, logins succeed with a valid username and an incorrect password, even though a failure entry is recorded in the /var/log/messages file.
