high Nessus Plugin ID 144060

Synopsis

The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities

Description

The version of PostgreSQL installed on the remote host is 9.5 prior to 9.5.24, 9.6 prior to 9.6.20, 10 prior to 10.15, 11 prior to 11.10, 12 prior to 12.5, or 13 prior to 13.1. As such, it is potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :
- Multiple features escape security restricted operation sandbox (CVE-2020-25695)
- Reconnection can downgrade connection security settings (CVE-2020-25694)
- psql's gset allows overwriting specially treated variables (CVE-2020-25696) Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Upgrade to PostgreSQL 9.5.24 / 9.6.20 / 10.15 / 11.10 / 12.5 / 13.1 or later
