Description:Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'perl-DBD-Pg'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
Perl DBI is a database access Application Programming Interface (API) for
the Perl language. perl-DBD-Pg allows Perl applications to access
PostgreSQL database servers.

Two format string flaws were found in perl-DBD-Pg. A specially-crafted
database warning or error message from a server could cause an application
using perl-DBD-Pg to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running the application. (CVE-2012-1151)

All users of perl-DBD-Pg are advised to upgrade to this updated package,
which contains a backported patch to fix these issues. Applications using
perl-DBD-Pg must be restarted for the update to take effect.

Affected Software/OS:
perl-DBD-Pg on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Solution:
Please Install the Updated Packages.
