Why is pam not checking passwords?

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • Found an issue with a pam configuration.
  • User acccounts accept anything typed as a password, the accounts gets authenticated no matter what is typed, whether it is the password or not.
  • Is this a bug into this library pam_succeed_if.so?
