Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : postgresql (MDVSA-2009:333)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 43167
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Multiple vulnerabilities was discovered and corrected in postgresql :

NULL Bytes in SSL Certificates can be used to falsify client or server authentication. This only affects users who have SSL enabled, perform certificate name validation or client certificate authentication, and where the Certificate Authority (CA) has been tricked into issuing invalid certificates. The use of a CA that can be trusted to always issue valid certificates is recommended to ensure you are not vulnerable to this issue (CVE-2009-4034).

Privilege escalation via changing session state in an index function.
This closes a corner case related to vulnerabilities CVE-2009-3230 and CVE-2007-6600 (CVE-2009-4136).

Integer overflow in src/backend/executor/nodeHash.c in PostgreSQL 8.4.1 and earlier, and 8.5 through 8.5alpha2, allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) via a SELECT statement with many LEFT JOIN clauses, related to certain hashtable size calculations (CVE-2010-0733).

Packages for 2008.0 are provided for Corporate Desktop 2008.0 customers

This update provides a solution to these vulnerabilities.

Solution
