Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2003:102: postgresql

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the postgresql package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2003:102 (postgresql).


Two bugs were discovered that lead to a buffer overflow in PostgreSQL versions
7.2.x and 7.3.x prior to 7.3.4, in the abstract data type (ADT) to ASCII
conversion functions. It is believed that, under the right circumstances, an
attacker may use this vulnerability to execute arbitrary instructions on the
PostgreSQL server.
The provided packages are patched to protect against this vulnerability and all
users are encouraged to upgrade immediately.
