CVE(s)      : CVE-2010-0833
_____________________________________________________________

Summary:

  A logic flaw has been found in the pam_lsass library that,
  when run under the context of a root service (e.g. sshd,
  gdm, etc.), will allow any user to logon as a lsassd
  local-provider account (e.g. MACHINE\Administrator) if
  the account's password is marked as expired.  The cause
  is that the pam_lsass library uses SetPassword logic when
  detecting that the uid is 0 therefore not requiring
  that the intruder validate against the expired password
  before being allowed to specify a new password.

  All Likewise Open users are encouraged to upgrade to
  the latest released packages for their version or to
  to employ the stated workaround until such a time when
  an upgrade may be performed.

  This defect was first reported by Matt Weatherford from
  the University of Washington.  Our thanks to Matt for
  helping improve Likewise Open.

Workaround:

  Explicitly disabling the MACHINE\Administrator (or any
  other lsassd local-provider accounts not in use) will
  prevent unauthorized access.  This may be done by running
  the following command as the local superuser.  Replace
   with the hostname of the local system

    $ lw-mod-user --disable-user "\Administrator"

  You may verify that the account is disabled by running the
  lw-find-user-by-name command

    $ lw-find-user-by-name --level 2 "MACHINE\Administrator"
    ...
    Account disabled (or locked): TRUE
