|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: pike: SQL injection vulnerability (GLSA 200608-10)
Date: August 06, 2006
Updated: December 13, 2006
A flaw in the input handling could lead to the execution of arbitrary SQL statements in the underlying PostgreSQL database.
Pike is a general purpose programming language, able to be used for multiple tasks.
Vulnerable: < 7.6.86
Unaffected: >= 7.6.86
Architectures: All supported architectures
Some input is not properly sanitised before being used in a SQL statement in the underlying PostgreSQL database.
A remote attacker could provide malicious input to a pike program, which might result in the execution of arbitrary SQL statements.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All pike users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-lang/pike-7.6.86"
Secunia Advisory SA20494
