SuSE 11 / 11.1 Security Update : postgresql (SAT Patch Numbers 2457 / 2458)

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

This update of postgresql fixes several minor security
vulnerabilities :

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

- 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-2010-1170)

- 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-2010-1169)

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