Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA577] DSA-577-1 postgresql

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-577-1 postgresql

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Trustix Security Engineers identified insecure temporary file creation
in a script included in the postgresql suite, an object-relational SQL
database. This could lead a possible hacker to trick a user to overwrite
arbitrary files he has write access to.
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 7.2.1-2woody6.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 7.4.6-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your postgresql packages.
