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.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
