Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in PostgreSQL which may allow
a remote attacker to conduct several attacks.

Background
==========

PostgreSQL is an open source object-relational database management
system.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 dev-db/postgresql-server
< 9.1.5 *>= 8.3.20
*>= 8.4.13
*>= 9.0.9
>= 9.1.5

Description
===========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in PostgreSQL. Please
review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could spoof SSL connections. Furthermore, a remote
authenticated attacker could cause a Denial of Service, read and write
arbitrary files, inject SQL commands into dump scripts, or bypass
database restrictions to execute database functions.

A context-dependent attacker could more easily obtain access via
authentication attempts with an initial substring of the intended
password.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All PostgreSQL 9.1 server users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-db/postgresql-server-9.1.5"=


All PostgreSQL 9.0 server users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-db/postgresql-server-9.0.9"=


All PostgreSQL 8.4 server users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot -v ">=dev-db/postgresql-server-8.4.13"

All PostgreSQL 8.3 server users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot -v ">=dev-db/postgresql-server-8.3.20"
