[DSA659] DSA-659-1 libpam-radius-auth Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
DSA-659-1 libpam-radius-auth

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Two problems have been discovered in the libpam-radius-auth package,
the PAM RADIUS authentication module. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures Project identifies the following problems:
The Debian package accidentally installed its configuration file
/etc/pam_radius_auth.conf world-readable. Since it may possibly
contain secrets all local users are able to read them if the
administrator hasn't adjusted file permissions. This problem is
Debian specific.
Leon Juranic discovered an integer underflow in the mod_auth_radius
module for Apache which is also present in libpam-radius-auth.
For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.3.14-1.3.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.3.16-3.
We recommend that you upgrade your libpam-radius-auth package.
