Malte Kraus discovered that libpam-python, a PAM module allowing PAM modules to be written in Python, didn't sanitise environment variables which could result in local privilege escalation if used with a setuid binary.

For the oldstable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in version 1.0.6-1.1+deb9u1.

For the stable distribution (buster), this problem has been fixed in version 1.0.6-1.1+deb10u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your pam-python packages.
