<background>
<p>
The Courier Authentication Library is a generic authentication API that
encapsulates the process of validating account passwords.

It has been discovered that some input (e.g. the username) passed to
the library are not properly sanitised before being used in SQL
queries.

A remote attacker could provide specially crafted input to the library,

NOTE: Exploitation of this vulnerability requires that a MySQL database
is used for authentication and that a Non-Latin character set is
selected.
