http://serverfault.com – I am running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. I did some minor updates using apt. After rebooting vsftp stopped accepting connections system user logins. In the auth log I am getting the following errors Dec 22 22:03:13 helium vsftpd: PAM unable to dlopen(pam_cracklib.so): /lib/security/pam_cracklib.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Dec 22 22:03:13 helium vsftpd: PAM adding faulty module: pam_cracklib.so Dec 22 22:03:13 helium vsftpd: pam_unix(vsftpd:auth): check pass; user unknown Dec 22 22:03:13 helium vsftpd: pam_unix(vsftpd:auth): authentication failure; logname= uid=0 euid=0 (HowTos)
