Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
Updated PostgreSQL packages to fix various security flaws are now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.
PostgreSQL is an advanced Object-Relational database management system
A flaw in the LOAD command in PostgreSQL was discovered. A local user
could use this flaw to load arbitrary shared librarys and therefore execute
arbitrary code, gaining the rights of the PostgreSQL server. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned
the name CVE-2005-0227 to this issue.
A permission checking flaw in PostgreSQL was discovered. A local user
could bypass the EXECUTE permission check for functions by using the CREATE
AGGREGATE command. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-0244 to this issue.
Multiple buffer overflows were found in PL/PgSQL. A database user who has
permissions to create plpgsql functions could trigger this flaw which could
lead to arbitrary code execution, gaining the rights of the PostgreSQL
server. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
has assigned the names CVE-2005-0245 and CVE-2005-0247 to these issues.
A flaw in the integer aggregator (intagg) contrib module for PostgreSQL was
found. A user could create carefully crafted arrays and cause a denial of
service (crash). The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-0246 to this issue.
Users of PostgreSQL are advised to update to these erratum packages which
are not vulnerable to these issues.
