SuSE 11 / 11.1 Security Update : postgresql (SAT Patch Numbers 2457 / 2458)

high Nessus Plugin ID 50958


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.


The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.


This update of postgresql fixes several minor security vulnerabilities :

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

- 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-2010-1170)

- 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-2010-1169)

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


Apply SAT patch number 2457 / 2458 as appropriate.
