Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : perl-DBD-Pg (MDVSA-2009:344)
High Nessus Plugin ID 43609
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.
DescriptionMultiple vulnerabilities was discovered and corrected in perl-DBD-Pg :
Heap-based buffer overflow in the DBD::Pg module for Perl might allow context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code via unspecified input to an application that uses the getline and pg_getline functions to read database rows.
Memory leak in the dequote_bytea function in quote.c in the DBD::Pg (aka DBD-Pg or libdbd-pg-perl) module before 2.0.0 for Perl allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by fetching data with BYTEA columns (CVE-2009-1341).
Packages for 2008.0 are provided for Corporate Desktop 2008.0 customers.
This update provides a fix for these vulnerabilities.
SolutionUpdate the affected perl-DBD-Pg package.
