Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update of postgresql was pblished to fix several minor security
vulnerabilities :

- CVE-2010-1975: postgresql does not properly check
privileges during certain RESET ALL operations, which
allows remote authenticated users to remove arbitrary
parameter settings.

- CVE-2010-1170: The PL/Tcl implementation in postgresql
loads Tcl code from the pltcl_modules table regardless
of the table's ownership and permissions, which allows
remote authenticated users, with database-creation
privileges, to execute arbitrary Tcl code.

- CVE-2010-1169: Postgresql does not properly restrict
PL/perl procedures, which allows remote authenticated
users, with database-creation privileges, to execute
arbitrary Perl code via a crafted script.

- CVE-2010-0733: An integer overflow in postgresql allows
remote authenticated users to crash the daemon via a
SELECT statement.
