EulerOS 2.0 SP1 : postgresql (EulerOS-SA-2016-1058)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 99820

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

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

- A flaw was found in the way PostgreSQL server handled
certain SQL statements containing CASE/WHEN commands. A
remote, authenticated attacker could use a specially
crafted SQL statement to cause PostgreSQL to crash or
disclose a few bytes of server memory or possibly
execute arbitrary code.(CVE-2016-5423)

- A flaw was found in the way PostgreSQL client programs
handled database and role names containing newlines,
carriage returns, double quotes, or backslashes. By
crafting such an object name, roles with the CREATEDB
or CREATEROLE option could escalate their privileges to
superuser when a superuser next executes maintenance
with a vulnerable client program.(CVE-2016-5424)

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.

Solution

Update the affected postgresql packages.
