PostgreSQL 8.3.x < 8.3.18 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium

Synopsis

The remote database server is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

Versions of PostgreSQL 8.3.x earlier than 8.3.18 are potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Permissions on a function called by a trigger are not properly checked. (CVE-2012-0866)

- SSL certificate name checks are truncated to 32 characters, allowing connection spoofing under some circumstances when using third party certificates. (CVE-2012-0867)

- Line breaks in object names can be exploited to execute arbitrary SQL when reloading a pg_dump file. (CVE-2012-0868)

Solution

Upgrade to PostgreSQL 8.3.18 or later.
