Ubuntu 6.06 LTS / 6.10 : postgresql-8.1 regression (USN-417-3)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 28009
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionUSN-417-2 fixed a severe regression in the PostgreSQL server that was introduced in USN-417-1 and caused some valid queries to be aborted with a type error. This update fixes a similar (but much less prominent) error.
At the same time, PostgreSQL is updated to version 8.1.8, which fixes a range of important bugs.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
