Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.66643
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-876-1 (postgresql-8.4)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-876-1 (postgresql-8.4)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to postgresql-8.4
announced via advisory USN-876-1.

Details follow:

It was discovered that PostgreSQL did not properly handle certificates with
NULL characters in the Common Name field of X.509 certificates. An attacker
could exploit this to perform a man in the middle attack to view sensitive
information or alter encrypted communications. (CVE-2009-4034)

It was discovered that PostgreSQL did not properly manage session-local
state. A remote authenticated user could exploit this to escalate
priviliges within PostgreSQL. (CVE-2009-4136)

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
postgresql-8.1 8.1.19-0ubuntu0.6.06

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
postgresql-8.3 8.3.9-0ubuntu8.04

Ubuntu 8.10:
postgresql-8.3 8.3.9-0ubuntu8.10

Ubuntu 9.04:
postgresql-8.3 8.3.9-0ubuntu9.04

Ubuntu 9.10:
postgresql-8.4 8.4.2-0ubuntu9.10

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.
