EulerOS 2.0 SP1 : posrgresql (EulerOS-SA-2017-1215)

This script is Copyright (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.

Description :

According to the versions of the posrgresql packages installed, the
EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following
vulnerabilities :

- It was found that some selectivity estimation functions
did not check user privileges before providing
information from pg_statistic, possibly leaking
information. A non-administrative database user could
use this flaw to steal some information from tables
they are otherwise not allowed to access.

- It was found that the pg_user_mappings view could
disclose information about user mappings to a foreign
database to non-administrative database users. A
database user with USAGE privilege for this mapping
could, when querying the view, obtain user mapping
data, such as the username and password used to connect
to the foreign database. (CVE-2017-7486)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the EulerOS security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
