Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2009:1485
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2009:1485.

PostgreSQL is an advanced object-relational database management system
(DBMS).

It was discovered that the upstream patch for CVE-2007-6600 included in the
Red Hat Security Advisory RHSA-2008:0039 did not include protection against
misuse of the RESET ROLE and RESET SESSION AUTHORIZATION commands. An
authenticated user could use this flaw to install malicious code that would
later execute with superuser privileges. (CVE-2009-3230)

All PostgreSQL users should upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to correct this issue. If you are running a
PostgreSQL server, the postgresql service must be restarted for this update
to take effect.

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
