Red Hat Security Advisory 2012-1116-01 - Perl DBI is a database access Application Programming Interface 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. 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.
