Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2006:017
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : mod_auth_ldap
Date : January 19, 2006
Affected: Corporate 2.1
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A format string flaw was discovered in the way that auth_ldap logs
information which may allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code
as the apache user if auth_ldap is used for authentication.

This update provides version 1.6.1 of auth_ldap which corrects the
problem. Only Corporate Server 2.1 shipped with a supported auth_ldap
package.
