    2014-06-08 - Arthur de Jong <> nss-pam-ldapd (0.9.4-1) unstable; urgency=medium * upload to unstable * new upstream release: - also handle password policy information on BIND failure (this makes it possible to distinguish between a wrong password and an expired password) - fix mapping the member attribute to an empty string - any buffers that may have held passwords are cleared before the memory is released - increase buffer size for passwords to support extremely long passwords (thanks ushi) - increase buffer size for DN to support very long names or names with non-ASCII characters - log an error in almost all places where a defined buffer is not large enough to hold the provided data instead of just (sometimes silently) failing - logging improvements (start-up problems, login failures) * add signature checking option to watch file * add a debian/upstream/metadata file
