Comment 1 Michael Grandjean univentionstaff 2017-08-02 09:59:08 CEST
Noticed by other customer. Looks like this affects all of our PAM configurations:
ftp, gdm, kdm, login, other, ppp, rlogin, screen, ssh ...
Comment 2 Arvid Requate univentionstaff 2017-08-03 19:03:31 CEST
I've manually imported the +deb8u2 version to src/ and cherrypicked the package into errata4.2-1. The UCS specific patches have been applied during built.

Advisory: pam.yaml
Comment 3 Philipp Hahn univentionstaff 2017-08-04 09:37:16 CEST
FIXED: pam.yaml → r81782
OK: errata-announce -V --only pam.yaml
