-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 ===================================================================== Red Hat Security Advisory Synopsis: Moderate: postgresql security update Advisory ID: RHSA-2008:0039-01 Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2008-0039.html Issue date: 2008-01-11 CVE Names: CVE-2007-3278 CVE-2007-6600 CVE-2007-6601 ===================================================================== 1. Summary: Updated postgresql packages that fix several security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3. This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. 2. Relevant releases/architectures: Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 3 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64 Red Hat Desktop version 3 - i386, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64 3. Description: PostgreSQL is an advanced Object-Relational database management system (DBMS). The postgresql packages include the client programs and libraries needed to access a PostgreSQL DBMS server. A privilege escalation flaw was discovered in PostgreSQL. An authenticated attacker could create an index function that would be executed with administrator privileges during database maintenance tasks, such as database vacuuming. (CVE-2007-6600) A privilege escalation flaw was discovered in PostgreSQL's Database Link library (dblink). An authenticated attacker could use dblink to possibly escalate privileges on systems with "trust" or "ident" authentication configured. Please note that dblink functionality is not enabled by default, and can only by enabled by a database administrator on systems with the postgresql-contrib package installed. (CVE-2007-3278, CVE-2007-6601) All postgresql users should upgrade to these updated packages, which include PostgreSQL 7.3.21 and resolve these issues. 4. Solution: Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released errata relevant to your system have been applied. This update is available via Red Hat Network. Details on how to use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/FAQ_58_10188 5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/): 309141 - CVE-2007-3278 dblink allows proxying of database connections via 127.0.0.1 427127 - CVE-2007-6600 PostgreSQL privilege escalation 427128 - CVE-2007-6601 PostgreSQL privilege escalation via dblink 6.
