Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-935-1 libapache2-mod-auth-pgsql

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

iDEFENSE reports that a format string vulnerability in mod_auth_pgsql, a
library used to authenticate web users against a PostgreSQL database,
could be used to execute arbitrary code with the rights of the httpd
user.
The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain
libapache2-mod-auth-pgsql.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.0.2b1-5sarge0.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed shortly.
We recommend that you upgrade your libapache2-mod-auth-pgsql package.
