Ubuntu 6.06 LTS / 6.10 : postgresql-8.1 regression (USN-417-3)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2007-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2007-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

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

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.

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

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.8
CVSS Temporal Score : 5.0
Public Exploit Available : true
