Medium Nessus Plugin ID 118448

Synopsis

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

This update for postgresql96 to 9.6.10 fixes the following issues :

These security issues were fixed :

- CVE-2018-10915: libpq failed to properly reset its internal state between connections. If an affected version of libpq was used with 'host' or 'hostaddr' connection parameters from untrusted input, attackers could have bypassed client-side connection security features, obtain access to higher privileged connections or potentially cause other impact SQL injection, by causing the PQescape() functions to malfunction (bsc#1104199)

- CVE-2018-10925: Add missing authorization check on certain statements involved with 'INSERT ... ON CONFLICT DO UPDATE'. An attacker with 'CREATE TABLE' privileges could have exploited this to read arbitrary bytes server memory. If the attacker also had certain 'INSERT' and limited 'UPDATE' privileges to a particular table, they could have exploited this to update other columns in the same table (bsc#1104202)

For addition details please see https://www.postgresql.org/docs/current/static/release-9-6-10.html

This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-12:Update update project.
