Description Josh Bressers 2006-01-05 13:11:41 EST
iDEFENSE has reported a format string flaw in mod_auth_pgsql.  This could allow
a remote unauthenticated attacker to execute arbitrary code as the httpd process.
Comment 1 Josh Bressers 2006-01-05 13:12:21 EST
This issue should also affect RHEL2.1 and RHEL3
Comment 2 Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2006-01-05 13:34:53 EST
RHEL2.1 uses version 0.9.9 of mod_auth_pgsql which uses different a different
mechanism for logging of failures and is not affected by this vulnerability.
