    2016-11-12 - Evgeni Golov <> pam (1.1.8-3.1+deb8u2) jessie; urgency=medium * Non-maintainer upload. * debian/patches-applied/pam-loginuid-in-containers: Updated with the version from Ubuntu, this should fix logins in containers (Closes: #726661)

    2016-01-06 - Tianon Gravi <> pam (1.1.8-3.1+deb8u1) jessie; urgency=medium * Non-maintainer upload. * Fix CVE-2015-3238: DoS/user enumeration due to blocking pipe in pam_unix module (Closes: #789986)

    2014-08-09 - Michael Gilbert <> pam (1.1.8-3.1) unstable; urgency=high * Non-maintainer upload by the Security Team. * Fix CVE-2013-7041: case-insensitive comparison used for verifying passwords in the pam_userdb module (closes: #731368). * Fix CVE-2014-2583: multiple directory traversal issues in the pam_timestamp module (closes: 757555)

    2014-04-07 - Steve Langasek <> pam (1.1.8-3) unstable; urgency=low * debian/rules: On hurd, link libpam explicitly with -lpthread since glibc will not dynamically switch between the libc stubs and the libpthread implementations on this architecture. Thanks to Samuel Thibault for the patch. Closes: #743891.

    2014-02-13 - Steve Langasek <> pam (1.1.8-2) unstable; urgency=medium * Mark the libaudit-dev build-dependency linux-any, since it's not available on non-Linux archs. Closes: #737035.

    2014-01-16 - Steve Langasek <> pam (1.1.8-1) unstable; urgency=medium * New upstream release. - includes upstream changes to pam_exec. Closes: #670147. - adds support for newer hashing algorithms to pam_userdb. Closes: #671740. - fixes handling of 'quiet' argument to pam_listfile, to match the documentation. Closes: #592219. - fixes handling of @users@@hosts netgroup syntax in access.conf. Closes: #681223. - fixes installation of the /etc/security/namespace.d directory. Closes: #710998. - 027_pam_limits_better_init_allow_explicit_root: support for reading /proc/1/limits is upstream, this patch now only handles the policy of resetting limits by default and not applying glob limits to root. - debian/patches/fix-manpage-crud: drop, manpages now being generated upstream with a newer, fixed xsltproc. - debian/patches/pam_env-fix-overflow.patch, pam_env-fix-dos.patch, glibc-2_16-compilation-fix.patch, sys-types-include.patch: drop, included upstream. * Add build-dependency on pkg-config. * Ensure autogenerated files are after source files in all relevant patches, so that regenerating documentation doesn't cause build skew. * Drop the --disable-regenerate-docu argument, restoring the HTML manuals to the libpam-doc package. Closes: #700485. * No need to override dh_compress in debian/rules, it already handles .html files correctly. * debian/libpam-cracklib.prerm: use $DPKG_MAINTSCRIPT_PACKAGE_COUNT to avoid prematurely removing the PAM config when the package is installed for multiple architectures. Closes: #647428.

    2014-01-14 - Steve Langasek <> pam (1.1.3-11) unstable; urgency=low [ Wookey ] * Disable libaudit for stage1 bootstrap. [ Steve Langasek ] * debian/patches-applied/pam-loginuid-in-containers: pam_loginuid: Ignore failure in user namespaces. * Use [linux-any] in build-deps, instead of hard-coding a list of non-Linux archs. Closes: #634516.

    2013-10-20 - Steve Langasek <> pam (1.1.3-10) unstable; urgency=low * Fix pam-auth-update handling of trailing blank lines in the fields of profiles. LP: #1160288. * Reintroduce libaudit support now that libaudit has been multiarched. Closes: #699159.
