Description

Several format string flaws were found in the way mod_auth_pgsql logs information. It may be possible for a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code as the 'apache' user if mod_auth_pgsql is used for user authentication. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the name CVE-2005-3656 to this issue.

Please note that this issue only affects servers which have mod_auth_pgsql installed and configured to perform user authentication against a PostgreSQL database.

Red Hat would like to thank iDefense for reporting this issue.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
