High Nessus Plugin ID 81337

Synopsis

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

Description

Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in postgresql :

Stephen Frost discovered that PostgreSQL incorrectly displayed certain values in error messages. An authenticated user could gain access to seeing certain values, contrary to expected permissions (CVE-2014-8161).

Andres Freund, Peter Geoghegan and Noah Misch discovered that PostgreSQL incorrectly handled buffers in to_char functions. An authenticated attacker could possibly use this issue to cause PostgreSQL to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code (CVE-2015-0241).

It was discovered that PostgreSQL incorrectly handled memory in the pgcrypto extension. An authenticated attacker could possibly use this issue to cause PostgreSQL to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code (CVE-2015-0243).

Emil Lenngren discovered that PostgreSQL incorrectly handled extended protocol message reading. An authenticated attacker could possibly use this issue to cause PostgreSQL to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly inject query messages (CVE-2015-0244).

This advisory provides the latest version of PostgreSQL that is not vulnerable to these issues.
