Description

Luke Howard reports:

If a pam_ldap client authenticates against an LDAP server that returns a passwordPolicyResponse control, but omits the optional "error" field of the PasswordPolicyResponseValue, then the LDAP authentication result will be ignored and the authentication step will always succeed.
