Background ========== PostgreSQL is a SQL compliant, open source object-relational database management system. Affected packages ================= ------------------------------------------------------------------- Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected ------------------------------------------------------------------- 1 dev-db/postgresql < 8.0.1-r1 >= 8.0.1-r1 *>= 7.4.7-r1 *>= 7.3.9-r1 Description =========== PostgreSQL is vulnerable to several buffer overflows in the PL/PgSQL parser. Impact ====== A remote attacker could send a malicious query resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running PostgreSQL. Workaround ========== There is no known workaround at this time. Resolution ========== All PostgreSQL users should upgrade to the latest version: # emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-db/postgresql-7.4.7-r1" References ========== [ 1 ] CAN-2005-0247 http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CAN-2005-0247 Availability ============ This GLSA and any updates to it are available for viewing at the Gentoo Security Website: http://security.gentoo.org/glsa/glsa-200502-19.xml Concerns? ========= Security is a primary focus of Gentoo Linux and ensuring the confidentiality and security of our users machines is of utmost importance to us.
