Description Joerg Wallerich 2008-02-23 15:00:07 UTC
The chap code in ppp(8) provides a target buffer to MD5Final()
that is not word aligned. This leads to a bus error in libmd while
computing a response to the CHAP challenge string.

Fix: Provide a temporary word aligned buffer to store the MD5 hash
and copy the hash into the CHAP response string using memcpy().

Patch attached with submission follows:
How-To-Repeat: Authenticate a ppp/pppoe session unsing CHAP
