    - CVE-2010-3853
  * debian/patches-applied/series: disable hurd_no_setfsuid patch, as it
    isn't needed for Ubuntu, and it needs to be rewritten to work with the
    massive privilege refactoring in the security patches.
  * debian/control: added Pre-Depends to libpam-modules so it won't get
    updated without pulling in the updated libpam0g.

Binary packages built by this source

libpam-cracklib: PAM module to enable cracklib support

 This package includes libpam_cracklib, a PAM module that tests
 passwords to make sure they are not too weak during password change.

libpam-doc: Documentation of PAM

 Contains documentation (in HTML, ASCII, and PostScript format) for
 libpam, the Pluggable Authentication Modules library, a suite of shared
 libraries that enable the local system administrator to choose how
 applications authenticate users.

libpam-modules: Pluggable Authentication Modules for PAM

 This package completes the set of modules for PAM. It includes the
  pam_unix_*.so module as well as some specialty modules.

libpam-runtime: Runtime support for the PAM library

 Contains configuration files and directories required for
 authentication to work on Debian systems. This package is required
 on almost all installations.

libpam0g: Pluggable Authentication Modules library

 Contains the C shared library for Linux-PAM, a suite of shared
 libraries that enable the local system administrator to choose how
 applications authenticate users. In other words, without rewriting
 or recompiling a PAM-aware application, it is possible to switch
 between the authentication mechanism(s) it uses. One may entirely
 upgrade the local authentication system without touching the
 applications themselves.

libpam0g-dev: Development files for PAM

 Contains C header files and development shared libraries libraries for
 libpam, the pluggable authentication modules, a suite of shared libraries
 that enable the local system administrator to choose how applications
 authenticate users.
 .
 PAM decouples applications from the authentication mechanism, making it
 possible to upgrade the authentication system without recompiling or
 rewriting the applications.
