Ubuntu: PostgreSQL vulnerabilities Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Ubuntu Michael Fuhr discovered an incorrect type check when handling unknown literals. By attempting to coerce such a literal to the ANYARRAY type, a local authenticated attacker could cause a server crash. Josh Drake and Alvaro Herrera reported a crash when using aggregate functions in UPDATE statements. A local authenticated attacker could exploit this to crash the server backend. This update disables this construct, since it is not very well defined and forbidden by the SQL standard.
=========================================================== 
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-369-1           October 24, 2006
postgresql-8.1 vulnerabilities
http://www.postgresql.org/about/news.664
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
  postgresql-8.1                           8.1.4-0ubuntu1.1

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.

Details follow:

Michael Fuhr discovered an incorrect type check when handling unknown
literals. By attempting to coerce such a literal to the ANYARRAY type,
a local authenticated attacker could cause a server crash.

Josh Drake and Alvaro Herrera reported a crash when using aggregate
functions in UPDATE statements. A local authenticated attacker could
exploit this to crash the server backend. This update disables this
construct, since it is not very well defined and forbidden by the SQL
standard.

Sergey Koposov discovered a flaw in the duration logging. This could
cause a server crash under certain circumstances.

Please note that these flaws can usually not be exploited through web
and other applications that use a database and are exposed to
untrusted input, so these flaws do not pose a threat in usual setups.


Updated packages for Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
