Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.60684
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2008:0039
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2008:0039.

PostgreSQL is an advanced Object-Relational database management system
(DBMS). The postgresql packages include the client programs and libraries
needed to access a PostgreSQL DBMS server.

A privilege escalation flaw was discovered in PostgreSQL. An authenticated
attacker could create an index function that would be executed with
administrator privileges during database maintenance tasks, such as
database vacuuming. (CVE-2007-6600)

A privilege escalation flaw was discovered in PostgreSQL's Database Link
library (dblink). An authenticated attacker could use dblink to possibly
escalate privileges on systems with trust or ident authentication
configured. Please note that dblink functionality is not enabled by
default, and can only by enabled by a database administrator on systems
with the postgresql-contrib package installed.
(CVE-2007-3278, CVE-2007-6601)

All postgresql users should upgrade to these updated packages, which
include PostgreSQL 7.3.21 and resolve 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
