The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
PostgreSQL is an advanced object-relational database management system
The pg_dump utility inserted object names literally into comments in
the SQL script it produces. An unprivileged database user could create
an object whose name includes a newline followed by a SQL command.
This SQL command might then be executed by a privileged user during
later restore of the backup dump, allowing privilege escalation.
CREATE TRIGGER did not do a permissions check on the trigger function
to be called. This could possibly allow an authenticated database user
to call a privileged trigger function on data of their choosing.
All PostgreSQL users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain backported patches to correct these issues. If the
postgresql service is running, it will be automatically restarted
after installing this update.
