 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:142

 Package : postgresql
 Date    : April 11, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0

 Problem Description:

 Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in
 PostgreSQL 9.2.x before 9.2.3, 9.1.x before 9.1.8, 9.0.x before 9.0.12,
 8.4.x before 8.4.16, and 8.3.x before 8.3.23 does not properly declare
 the enum_recv function in backend/utils/adt/enum.c, which causes it to
 be invoked with incorrect arguments and allows remote authenticated
 users to cause a denial of service (server crash) or read sensitive
 process memory via a crafted SQL command, which triggers an array
 index error and an out-of-bounds read (CVE-2013-0255).
 Argument injection vulnerability in PostgreSQL 9.2.x before 9.2.4,
 9.1.x before 9.1.9, and 9.0.x before 9.0.13 allows remote attackers
 to cause a denial of service (file corruption), and allows remote
 authenticated users to modify configuration settings and execute
 arbitrary code, via a connection request using a database name that
 begins with a - (hyphen) (CVE-2013-1899).
 PostgreSQL 9.2.x before 9.2.4, 9.1.x before 9.1.9, 9.0.x before 9.0.13,
 and 8.4.x before 8.4.17, when using OpenSSL, generates insufficiently
 random numbers, which might allow remote authenticated users to have
 an unspecified impact via vectors related to the contrib/pgcrypto
 functions. (CVE-2013-1900).
 PostgreSQL 9.2.x before 9.2.4 and 9.1.x before 9.1.9 does not properly
 check REPLICATION privileges, which allows remote authenticated
 users to bypass intended backup restrictions by calling the (1)
 pg_start_backup or (2) pg_stop_backup functions (CVE-2013-1901).
 This advisory provides the latest versions of PostgreSQL that is not
 vulnerable to these issues.
