    Libpam was broken
    by jes5199 on Wednesday, June 27 @ 19:39:01 BST

    The submission:
    I can’t log in… I don’t even get a password prompt before it tells me it’s incorrect

    As I understand it libpam 0.72-26 broke (thus the lack of logging in). Fixed deb is in unstable.

    If you are stuck without a root console – you can pass the init=/bin/sh option to the kernel at boot time (hitting Ctrl-Alt-Del should take the box down cleanly). If you can’t do that then either boot via a rescue CDROM/floppy or put the disk in another box. You can chroot into your mounted rootfs and things should be normal enough to upgrade.

    And look on the bright side – your box is pretty damm secure. The submission:
