Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:098: 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-2006:098 (postgresql).



PostgreSQL 8.1.x before 8.1.4, 8.0.x before 8.0.8, 7.4.x before 7.4.13,

7.3.x before 7.3.15, and earlier versions permits context-dependent

attackers to bypass SQL injection protection methods in applications

via invalid encodings of multibyte characters, aka one variant of

'Encoding-Based SQL Injection.' (CVE-2006-2313)



PostgreSQL 8.1.x before 8.1.4, 8.0.x before 8.0.8, 7.4.x before 7.4.13,

7.3.x before 7.3.15, and earlier versions permits context-dependent

attackers to bypass SQL injection protection methods in applications

that use multibyte encodings that permit the '' (backslash) byte 0x5c to

be the trailing byte of a multibyte character, such as SJIS, BIG5, GBK,

GB18030, and UHC, which cannot be handled correctly by a client that does

not understand multibyte encodings, aka a second variant of 'Encoding-Based

SQL Injection.' NOTE: it could be argued that this is a class of issue

related to interaction errors between the client and PostgreSQL, but a

CVE has been assigned since PostgreSQL is treating this as a preventative

measure against this class of problem. (CVE-2006-2314)



Packages have been patched or updated to correct these issues.
