Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2014-02-19 08:39:46 UTC
From ${URL} :

Pierre Carrier reported a stack-based buffer overflow flaw in the FreeRADIUS rlm_pap module. An 
authenticated user could trigger this issue by creating a large password, causing FreeRADIUS to crash. The 
stack protector and SSP variable re-ordering protections should help prevent this issue from being used to 
execute arbitrary code.

@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.
