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.
