package/libpam-tacplus: fix CVE-2020-27743
libtac in pam_tacplus through 1.5.1 lacks a check for a failure of RAND_bytes()/RAND_pseudo_bytes(). This could lead to use of a non-random/predictable session_id. Signed-off-by: Fabrice Fontaine <fontaine.fabrice@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Thomas Petazzoni <thomas.petazzoni@bootlin.com>

+Subject: [PATCH] magic.c: check for failure of RAND_[pseudo_]bytes
+
+When magic() is implemented via libcrypto's RAND_bytes or
+RAND_pseudo_bytes we should check for a failure and abort to
+ensure we don't use a predictable session_id.
+
+This prevents (further) weakening* of the TACACS+ protocol
+"encryption" since session_id is an input to the algorithm.
+
+*by modern standards TACACS+ is deemed "obfuscated" - RFC 8907.

+If there is a failure obtaining a random task ID for the session
+accounting request then fallback to using the PID, as this is unique
