Updated advisory on pam_localuser module

Author: JT Smith

LWN.net has an advisory from Linux Mandrake: "The pam_localuser module, which is a part of the pam package, contains
a buffer overflow vulnerability. This module is not used in any
default configuration and for a user to be exploited, they would have
to manually insert it into a configuration file in the /etc/pam.d
directory."
