<p>
PAM-MySQL is a PAM module used to authenticate users against a MySQL
backend.

</background>
<description>
<p>
A flaw in handling the result of pam_get_item() as well as further
unspecified flaws were discovered in PAM-MySQL.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
By exploiting the mentioned flaws an attacker can cause a Denial of
Service and thus prevent users that authenticate against PAM-MySQL from
logging into a machine. There is also a possible additional attack
vector with more malicious impact that has not been confirmed yet.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All PAM-MySQL users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=sys-auth/pam_mysql-0.7_rc1&quot;</code>
</resolution>
