Synopsis

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

This update of postgresql was pblished to fix several minor security vulnerabilities :

- CVE-2010-1975: postgresql does not properly check privileges during certain RESET ALL operations, which allows remote authenticated users to remove arbitrary parameter settings.

- CVE-2010-1170: The PL/Tcl implementation in postgresql loads Tcl code from the pltcl_modules table regardless of the table's ownership and permissions, which allows remote authenticated users, with database-creation privileges, to execute arbitrary Tcl code.

- CVE-2010-1169: Postgresql does not properly restrict PL/perl procedures, which allows remote authenticated users, with database-creation privileges, to execute arbitrary Perl code via a crafted script.

- CVE-2010-0733: An integer overflow in postgresql allows remote authenticated users to crash the daemon via a SELECT statement.

Solution

Update the affected postgresql packages.
