EulerOS 2.0 SP1 : postgresql (EulerOS-SA-2016-1001)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 99764


The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.


According to the version of the postgresql packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :

- An integer overflow flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, was found in the PostgreSQL handling code for regular expressions. A remote attacker could use a specially crafted regular expression to cause PostgreSQL to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code.(CVE-2016-0773)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the EulerOS security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected postgresql package.
