Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2005:027 (postgresql).


Several problems were identified and fixed in the PostgreSQL

Multiple buffer overflows in the low level parsing routines may
permit attackers to execute arbitrary code via:

(1) a large number of variables in a SQL statement being handled by
the read_sql_construct() function,

(2) a large number of INTO variables in a SELECT statement being
handled by the make_select_stmt function,

(3) a large number of arbitrary variables in a SELECT statement being
handled by the make_select_stmt function, and

(4) a large number of INTO variables in a FETCH statement being
handled by the make_fetch_stmt function.


This is tracked by the Mitre CVE ID CVE-2005-0247.
