-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Trustix Secure Linux Security Advisory #2005-0015 Package name: postgresql Summary: Buffer overflows Date: 2005-04-25 Affected versions: Trustix Secure Linux 2.1 Trustix Secure Linux 2.2 Trustix Operating System - Enterprise Server 2 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Package description: PostgreSQL is an advanced Object-Relational database management system (DBMS) that supports almost all SQL constructs (including transactions, subselects and user-defined types and functions). The postgresql package includes the client programs and libraries that you'll need to access a PostgreSQL DBMS server. These PostgreSQL client programs are programs that directly manipulate the internal structure of PostgreSQL databases on a PostgreSQL server. These client programs can be located on the same machine with the PostgreSQL server, or may be on a remote machine which accesses a PostgreSQL server over a network connection. This package contains the docs in HTML for the whole package, as well as command-line utilities for managing PostgreSQL databases on a PostgreSQL server. Problem description: From the CVE entry: Multiple buffer overflows in gram.y for PostgreSQL 8.0.1 and earlier may allow attackers to execute arbitrary code via (1) a large number of variables in a SQL statement being handled by the read_sql_construct function, (2) a large number of INTO variables in a SELECT statement being handled by the make_select_stmt function, (3) a large number of arbitrary variables in a SELECT statement being handled by the make_select_stmt function, and (4) a large number of INTO variables in a FETCH statement being handled by the make_fetch_stmt function, a different set of vulnerabilities than CAN-2005-0245. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project ( has assigned the name CAN-2005-0247 to this issue. Action: We recommend that all systems with this package installed be upgraded. Please note that if you do not need the functionality provided by this package, you may want to remove it from your system.
