-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Trustix Secure Linux Security Advisory #2006-0059 Package names: postgresql Summary: Multiple vulnerabilities Date: 2006-10-27 Affected versions: Trustix Secure Linux 2.2 Trustix Secure Linux 3.0 Trustix Operating System - Enterprise Server 2 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Package description: postgresql 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: postgresql < TSL 3.0 > < TSL 2.2 > < TSEL 2 > - New Upstream. - SECURITY Fix: Some vulnerabilities have been reported in PostgreSQL, which can be exploited by malicious users to cause a DoS (SA22562). - An incorrect type check before coercing unknown literals into the ANYARRY type can be exploited to cause a crash when converting certain literals into ANYARRAY. - An error exists within the handling of aggregate functions in UPDATE statements, which can be exploited to crash the server backend. - An error within the logging of V3-protocol execute messages of ROLLBACK or COMMIT statements can be exploited to cause a crash. 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.
