Synopsis :

privilege escalation vulnerability.

Store (ADS) or Avamar Virtual Edition (AVE) software running on the
remote host is a version prior to 7.3.0 Hotfix 263301 (7.3.0.233),
or the configuration is not patched. It is, therefore, affected by a
local privilege escalation vulnerability that allows a local attacker
to execute arbitrary PostgreSQL commands and thereby gain elevated
privileged.
