Description

After installing bos.rte.security 6.1.6.4 fileset, an LDAP user will be able to log in with an incorrect password. This occurs only when authtype is set to ldap_auth in the /etc/security/ldap/ldap.cfg file. Non-LDAP users can also log in with incorrect passwords if the local users have their SYSTEM attribute in the /etc/security/user file is set to SYSTEM = "LDAP", or the default stanza is set to SYSTEM = "LDAP" and local users do not have SYSTEM set in their own stanza. If local users don't have LDAP in their SYSTEM attribute, then they will not be affected.
