Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.51011
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2003:314
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2003:314.

PostgreSQL is an advanced Object-Relational database management system
(DBMS).

Two bugs that can lead to buffer overflows have been found in the
PostgreSQL abstract data type to ASCII conversion routines. A remote
attacker who is able to influence the data passed to the to_ascii functions
may be able to execute arbitrary code in the context of the PostgreSQL
server. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
has assigned the name CVE-2003-0901 to these issues.

In addition, a bug that can lead to leaks has been found in the string to
timestamp abstract data type conversion routine. If the input string to
the to_timestamp() routine is shorter than what the template string is
expecting, the routine will run off the end of the input string, resulting
in a leak and unstable behaviour.

Users of PostgreSQL are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages, which
contain a backported patch that corrects these issues.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
