openSUSE Security Update : postgresql94 (openSUSE-2018-1482)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 119490

Synopsis

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

This update for postgresql94 to 9.4.19 fixes the following security issue :

- 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).

A dump/restore is not required for this update unless you use the functions query_to_xml, cursor_to_xml, cursor_to_xmlschema, query_to_xmlschema, and query_to_xml_and_xmlschema. In this case please see the first entry of https://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.4/static/release-9-4-18.html

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

Solution

Update the affected postgresql94 packages.
