openSUSE Security Update : postgresql (openSUSE-SU-2010:0903-1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 50375


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


PostgreSQL functions implemented in Perl or TCL shared a global state even across different user user ids. A user could therefore influence functions of other users in an unexpected or even malicious way (CVE-2010-3433).


Update the affected postgresql packages.
