     3 Date:: 2017-02-19
     4
     5 Affects:: [[Releases/Ourouparia|Ourouparia]], [[Releases/Nummularia|Nummularia]], [[Releases/Micrampelis|Micrampelis]] and [[Releases/Lycopsida|Lycopsida]]
     6
     7 Description:: In OpenPAM [[Releases/Lycopsida|Lycopsida]], code was added to the {{{pam_set_item()}}} function to disallow changing the value of the {{{PAM_SERVICE}}} item, which contains the service name.  An unintended side effect of this is that {{{pam_end}}} is no longer able to free the memory allocated to hold the service name.  As a consequence, each PAM session leaks a small amount of memory.

     9 Workaround:: None.
     10
     11 Fix:: Apply r918.
