A format string vulnerability has been reported for the mod_ntlm Apache module. The problem occurs when logging authentication strings passed in HTTP requests. By passing malicious format specifiers in a request, it may be possibile for an attacker to corrupt sensitive locations in memory. This may result in a denial of service or under certain circumstances could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code.
