CVE-2010-4706

Priority
Low
Description
The pam_sm_close_session function in pam_xauth.c in the pam_xauth module in
Linux-PAM (aka pam) 1.1.2 and earlier does not properly handle a failure to
determine a certain target uid, which might allow local users to delete
unintended files by executing a program that relies on the pam_xauth PAM
check.
