Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2005:040: 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-2005:040 (postgresql).



A number of vulnerabilities were found and corrected in the PostgreSQL DBMS:

A flaw in the LOAD command could be abused by a local user to load arbitrary
shared libraries and as a result execute arbitrary code with the rights of
the user running the postgresql server (CVE-2005-0227).

A permission checking flaw was found where a local user could bypass the
EXECUTE permission check for functions using the CREATE AGGREGATE command
(CVE-2005-0244).

Multiple bufffer overflows were discovered in PL/PgSQL. A database user with
permission to create plpgsql functions could trigger these flaws which could
then lead to arbitrary code execution with the rights of the user running
the postgresql server (CVE-2005-0245 and CVE-2005-0247).

Finally, a flaw in the integer aggregator (intagg) contrib module was found. A
user could create carefully crafted arrays and crash the server, causing a
Denial of Service (CVE-2005-0246).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these problems.
