Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: PostgreSQL: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200703-15)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: March 16, 2007
Updated: May 28, 2009
Bug(s): #165482
ID: 200703-15

Synopsis


PostgreSQL contains two vulnerabilities that could result in a Denial of
Service or unauthorized access to certain information.


Background


PostgreSQL is an open source object-relational database management
system.


Affected Packages

Package: dev-db/postgresql
Vulnerable: < 8.0.11
Unaffected: >= 8.0.11
Unaffected: >= 7.4.17 < 7.4.18
Unaffected: >= 7.4.16 < 7.4.17
Unaffected: >= 7.3.19 < 7.3.20
Unaffected: >= 7.3.13 < 7.3.14
Unaffected: >= 7.3.21 < 7.3.22
Unaffected: >= 7.4.19 < 7.4.20
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description


PostgreSQL does not correctly check the data types of the SQL function
arguments under unspecified circumstances nor the format of the
provided tables in the query planner.


Impact


A remote authenticated attacker could send specially crafted queries to
the server that could result in a server crash and possibly the
unauthorized reading of some database content or arbitrary memory.


Workaround


There is no known workaround at this time.


Resolution


All PostgreSQL users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "dev-db/postgresql"
