It was discovered that libpam-sshauth, a PAM module to authenticate

configurations an attacker can take advantage of this flaw to gain root
privileges.

For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.3.1-1+deb8u1.

For the testing distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed
in version 0.4.1-2.
