Summary

An issue in the pam _boks.so.1 file leads the bp_verify_passwd_data() call to cause su to core dump.

Issue

Communication problems with servc when a su operation is attempted may cause the bp_verify_passwd_data() call in the file pam_boks.so.1 to trigger a core dump.

Resolution / Workaround

This issue can be resolved by installing hotfix TFS120720-013666, available from the FoxT technical support site, which includes an updated version of pam_boks.so.1.

Note that, as hotfix TFS120720-013666 was released to fix a different issue, the hotfix README does not mention the core dump issue that is the subject of this article.

Note: The older hotfix TFS120308-013297 also includes an updated version of pam_boks.so.1 where this issue is resolved, but Fox Technologies recommends installing the more recent hotfix.
