Linux-PAM 0.99.7.1 released



Hello,

The Linux-PAM developement team is pleased to announce the release
of version 0.99.7.1.

This release fixes a serious problem in pam_unix.so introduced in the
previous release 0.99.7.0. With that release anyone would be able to
log in into account with '!!' or similar password hash in /etc/shadow
or /etc/passwd using any password. Anyone using pam_unix should immediately
upgrade. CVE-2007-0003 (cve.mitre.org) was assigned to this issue.


Release 0.99.7.1

* Security fix for pam_unix.so (CVE-2007-0003).

 Your Linux-PAM development team
