 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability was discovered and corrected in postgresql:
 
 contrib/pg_crypto's blowfish encryption code could give wrong results
 on platforms where char is signed (which is most), leading to encrypted
 passwords being weaker than they should be (CVE-2011-2483).
 
 Additionally corrected ossp-uuid packages as well as corrected support
 in postgresql 9.0.x are being provided for Mandriva Linux 2011.
