Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:194: 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-2006:194 (postgresql).

A vulnerability in PostgreSQL 8.1.x permited remote authenticated users
to cause a Denial of Service (daemon crash) via certain aggregate
functions in an UPDATE statement which were not handled correctly
(CVE-2006-5540).
Another DoS issue in PostgreSQL 7.4.x, 8.0.x, and 8.1.x permited remote
authenticated users to crash the daemon via a coercion of an unknown
element to ANYARRAY (CVE-2006-5541).
Finally, another vulnerability in 8.1.x could permit a remote
authenticated user to cause a DoS related to duration logging of
V3-protocol Execute message for COMMIT and ROLLBACK statements
(CVE-2006-5542).
This updated provides the latest 8.0.x and 8.1.x PostgreSQL versions
and patches the version of PostgreSQL shipped with Corporate 3.0.
After installing this upgrade, you will need to execute 'service
postgresql restart' for it to take effect.
