FreeBSD : postgresql-contrib -- insecure temporary file creation (6a164d84-2f7f-11d9-a9e7-0001020eed82)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 37716


The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.


The make_oidjoins_check script in the PostgreSQL RDBMS has insecure handling of temporary files, which could lead to an attacker overwriting arbitrary files with the credentials of the user running the make_oidjoins_check script.


Update the affected packages.
