    Package : pam-pgsql
    Vulnerability : format string
    Problem-Type : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Ids : CAN-2003-0672

    Florian Zumbiehl reported a vulnerability in pam-pgsql whereby the
    username to be used for authentication is used as a format string when
    writing a log message. This vulnerability may allow an attacker to
    execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the program requesting
    PAM authentication.

    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.5.2-3woody1.

    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.5.2-7.

    We recommend that you update your pam-pgsql package.
