Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2007-2015 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2007-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description :

USN-417-2 fixed a severe regression in the PostgreSQL server that was
introduced in USN-417-1 and caused some valid queries to be aborted
with a type error. This update fixes a similar (but much less
prominent) error.

At the same time, PostgreSQL is updated to version 8.1.8, which fixes
a range of important bugs.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.8
