Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.68187
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-1002-1 (postgresql-8.4)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-1002-1 (postgresql-8.4)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to postgresql-8.4
announced via advisory USN-1002-1.

Details follow:

It was discovered that PostgreSQL did not properly enforce permissions
within sessions when PL/Perl and PL/Tcl functions or operators were
redefined. A remote authenticated attacker could exploit this to execute
arbitrary code with permissions of a different user, possibly leading to
privilege escalation.

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

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
postgresql-plperl-8.1 8.1.22-0ubuntu0.6.06
postgresql-pltcl-8.1 8.1.22-0ubuntu0.6.06

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
postgresql-plperl-8.3 8.3.12-0ubuntu8.04
postgresql-pltcl-8.3 8.3.12-0ubuntu8.04

Ubuntu 9.04:
postgresql-plperl-8.3 8.3.12-0ubuntu9.04
postgresql-pltcl-8.3 8.3.12-0ubuntu9.04

Ubuntu 9.10:
postgresql-plperl-8.4 8.4.5-0ubuntu9.10
postgresql-pltcl-8.4 8.4.5-0ubuntu9.10

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
postgresql-plperl-8.4 8.4.5-0ubuntu10.04
postgresql-pltcl-8.4 8.4.5-0ubuntu10.04

This update uses a new upstream release, which includes additional bug
fixes. In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary
changes.
