CVE-2008-2516 - Ailurophilic Custodian


pam_sm_authenticate in pam_pgsql.c in libpam-pgsql 0.6.3 does not properly consider operator precedence when evaluating the success of a pam_get_pass function call which allows local users to gain privileges via a SIGINT signal when this function is executing as demonstrated by a CTRL-C sequence at a sudo password prompt in an \auth sufficient\ configuration.
