A certain Red Hat build of the pam_ssh_agent_auth module on Red Hat
Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6 and Fedora Rawhide calls the glibc error
function instead of the error function in the OpenSSH codebase, which
allows local users to obtain sensitive information from process memory
or possibly gain privileges via crafted use of an application that
relies on this module, as demonstrated by su and sudo.
