Date: 2006-10-27
Affected versions: Trustix Secure Linux 2.2
Trustix Secure Linux 3.0
Trustix Operating System - Enterprise Server 2

Package description:
PostgreSQL is an advanced Object-Relational database management system
(DBMS) that supports almost all SQL constructs (including transactions,
subselects and user-defined types and functions). The postgresql package
includes the client programs and libraries that you'll need to access
a PostgreSQL DBMS server. These PostgreSQL client programs are programs
that directly manipulate the internal structure of PostgreSQL databases
on a PostgreSQL server. These client programs can be located on the
same machine with the PostgreSQL server, or may be on a remote machine
which accesses a PostgreSQL server over a network connection. This
package contains the docs in HTML for the whole package, as well as
command-line utilities for managing PostgreSQL databases on a
PostgreSQL server.

Problem description:
postgresql < TSL 3.0 > < TSL 2.2 > < TSEL 2 >
- New Upstream.
- SECURITY Fix: Some vulnerabilities have been reported in PostgreSQL,
which can be exploited by malicious users to cause a DoS (SA22562).
- An incorrect type check before coercing unknown literals into the
ANYARRY type can be exploited to cause a crash when converting
certain literals into ANYARRAY.
- An error exists within the handling of aggregate functions in UPDATE
statements, which can be exploited to crash the server backend.
- An error within the logging of V3-protocol execute messages of
ROLLBACK or COMMIT statements can be exploited to cause a crash.

We recommend that all systems with this package installed be upgraded.
Please note that if you do not need the functionality provided by this
package, you may want to remove it from your system.
