Details

Updated mod_auth_pgsql packages are now available for Red Hat Linux 7.2.
These updates close a vulnerability which would allow a malicious client to
cause a Web server to execute arbitrary SQL statements. A bug in the MD5
password mechanism causing valid passwords not to authenticate the user has
also been fixed.

The updated mod_auth_pgsql packages close a vulnerability which would allow
a malicious client to cause a Web server to execute arbitrary SQL
statements. Several Apache authentication modules which use SQL databases
to store authentication information are vulnerable to a remote SQL code
injection attack. A bug in the MD5 password mechanism causing valid
passwords not to authenticate the user has also been fixed.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which are
not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note that you
can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains
the
desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network. Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.
