                   Red Hat, Inc. Red Hat Bug Fix Advisory

Synopsis:          Updated pam and usermode packages available
Advisory ID:       RHBA-2001:149-14
Issue date:        2001-11-02
Updated on:        2001-11-14
Product:           Red Hat Linux

1. Topic:

Updated pam and usermode packages are now available for Red Hat Linux 7,
7.1, and 7.2.  These updates fix a bug which would prevent X authorization
records from being correctly propagated to programs run using the
userhelper setuid helper program.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 7.1 - alpha, i386, ia64

Red Hat Linux 7.2 - i386

3. Problem description:

After setting the XAUTHORITY environment variable, the pam_xauth module
would incorrectly free the space used to hold the variable's value,
allowing it to be unintentionally modified when the space was later reused
in the calling program.  The userhelper binary did not properly pass
environment variables set by PAM modules on to programs it ran.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade.  Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated.  Those RPMs which are
not installed but included in the list will not be updated.  Note that you
can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains
desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network.  Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates.  To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:


This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla for more info):

55651 - Broken link in pam-devel update
