PostgreSQL < 8.0.3 Incorrect Function Declaration



The remote host is vulnerable to a flaw that allows for the bypassing of authentication.


The remote host is running PostgreSQL, an open source relational database. This version is vulnerable to a number of flaws. Specifically, the following functions are directly accessible to remote users: dex_init() snb_en_init() snb_ru_init() spell_init() syn_init()

An attacker calling these functions can submit queries that lead to compromise of confidential data or execution of arbitrary code on the remote database server.


Upgrade to PostgreSQL 8.0.3 or higher.
