Details:

Product: Ensim Pro for Linux
Version:
4.0.3 (22 Fedora Core 2)
Date:  May 24,2005
Patch Description:

Addresses the issue:
With FC2 cyrus-sasl version 2.1.18 is installed. There is a bug in cyrus-sasl versions 2.1.17 and 2.1.18, they are cutting off the domain part from the username due to which pam AUTH was failing. The solution for this is to downgrade to cyrus-sasl version 2.1.15.The sasl_fixup library was modified for 4.0.3 to make it work for FC2 which introduced issues as reported in the PR 42797
