Medium Nessus Plugin ID 117709
SynopsisThe remote Amazon Linux 2 host is missing a security update.
DescriptionA vulnerability was found in libpq, the default PostgreSQL client
library where libpq failed to properly reset its internal state
between connections. If an affected version of libpq were used with
'host' or 'hostaddr' connection parameters from untrusted input,
attackers could bypass client-side connection security features,
obtain access to higher privileged connections or potentially cause
other impact through SQL injection, by causing the PQescape()
functions to malfunction.(CVE-2018-10915)
SolutionRun 'yum update postgresql' to update your system.
