Summary     : Basic authentication for the Apache web server using a PostgreSQL database.
Description :
mod_auth_pgsql can be used to limit access to documents served by a web server
by checking fields in a table in a PostgresQL database.

Update Information:

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.
