    2012-04-29 - Michael Gilbert <> pam (1.1.3-7.1) unstable; urgency=low * Non-maintainer upload. * Fix cve-2011-4708: user-configurable .pam_environment allows administrator-level changes without root access (closes: #611136).

    2011-11-06 - Steve Langasek <> pam (1.1.3-6) unstable; urgency=low * debian/patches-applied/hurd_no_setfsuid: we don't want to check all setre*id() calls; we know that there are situations where some of these may fail but we don't care. As long as the last setre*id() call in each set succeeds, that's the state we mean to be in. * debian/libpam0g.postinst: according to Kubuntu developers, kdm no longer keeps libpam loaded persistently at runtime, so it's not necessary to force a kdm restart on ABI bump. Which is good, since restarting kdm now seems to also log users out of running sessions, which we rather want to avoid. Closes: #632673, LP: #744944. * debian/patches-applied/update-motd: set a sane umask before calling run-parts, and restore the old mask afterwards, so /run/motd gets consistent permissions. LP: #871943. * debian/patches-applied/update-motd: new module option for pam_motd, 'noupdate', which suppresses the call to run-parts /etc/update-motd.d. LP: #805423. * debian/libpam0g.templates, debian/libpam0g.postinst: add a new question, libraries/restart-without-asking, that allows admins to accept the service restarts once for all so that they don't have to repeatedly say "ok". LP: #745004. * debian/libpam-runtime.templates, debian/local/pam-auth-update: add a new 'title' template, so pam-auth-update doesn't give a blank title when called outside of a maintainer script. LP: #882794.
