3. Description:

PostgreSQL is an advanced object-relational database management system
(DBMS).

The pg_dump utility inserted object names literally into comments in the
SQL script it produces. An unprivileged database user could create an
object whose name includes a newline followed by an SQL command. This SQL
command might then be executed by a privileged user during later restore of
the backup dump, allowing privilege escalation. (CVE-2012-0868)

When configured to do SSL certificate verification, PostgreSQL only checked
the first 31 characters of the certificate's Common Name field. Depending
on the configuration, this could allow an attacker to impersonate a server
or a client using a certificate from a trusted Certificate Authority issued
for a different name. (CVE-2012-0867)

CREATE TRIGGER did not do a permissions check on the trigger function to
be called. This could possibly allow an authenticated database user to
call a privileged trigger function on data of their choosing.
(CVE-2012-0866)

These updated packages upgrade PostgreSQL to version 8.4.11, which fixes
these issues as well as several data-corruption issues and lesser
non-security issues. Refer to the PostgreSQL Release Notes for a full list
of changes:

http://www.postgresql.org/docs/8.4/static/release.html

All PostgreSQL users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which correct these issues. If the postgresql service is running, it will
be automatically restarted after installing this update.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at

[RHSA-2012:0683-01] Important: bind-dyndb-ldap security update
=====================================================================
Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Important: bind-dyndb-ldap security update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2012:0683-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2012-0683.html
Issue date: 2012-05-21
CVE Names: CVE-2012-2134
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

An updated bind-dyndb-ldap package that fixes one security issue is now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
important security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)
base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the
CVE link in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6) - i386, ppc64, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6) - i386, x86_64

3. Description:

The dynamic LDAP back end is a plug-in for BIND that provides back-end
capabilities to LDAP databases. It features support for dynamic updates
and internal caching that help to reduce the load on LDAP servers.

A flaw was found in the way bind-dyndb-ldap handled LDAP query errors. If a
remote attacker were able to send DNS queries to a named server that is
configured to use bind-dyndb-ldap, they could trigger such an error with a
DNS query leveraging bind-dyndb-ldap's insufficient escaping of the LDAP
base DN (distinguished name). This would result in an invalid LDAP query
that named would retry in a loop, preventing it from responding to other
DNS queries. With this update, bind-dyndb-ldap only attempts to retry one
time when an LDAP search returns an unexpected error. (CVE-2012-2134)

Red Hat would like to thank Ronald van Zantvoort for reporting this issue.

All bind-dyndb-ldap users should upgrade to this updated package, which
contains a backported patch to correct this issue. For the update to take
effect, the named service must be restarted.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/articles/11258

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

[RHSA-2012:0677-01] Moderate: postgresql security update
=====================================================================
Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Moderate: postgresql security update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2012:0677-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2012-0677.html
Issue date: 2012-05-21

=====================================================================

1. Summary:

Updated postgresql packages that fix two security issues are now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate
security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores,
which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64

3. Description:

PostgreSQL is an advanced object-relational database management system
(DBMS).

The pg_dump utility inserted object names literally into comments in the
SQL script it produces. An unprivileged database user could create an
object whose name includes a newline followed by an SQL command. This SQL
command might then be executed by a privileged user during later restore of
the backup dump, allowing privilege escalation. (CVE-2012-0868)

CREATE TRIGGER did not do a permissions check on the trigger function to
be called. This could possibly allow an authenticated database user to
call a privileged trigger function on data of their choosing.
(CVE-2012-0866)

All PostgreSQL users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain backported patches to correct these issues. If the postgresql
service is running, it will be automatically restarted after installing
this update.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

[RHSA-2012:0676-01] Moderate: kvm security and bug fix update
=====================================================================
Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Moderate: kvm security and bug fix update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2012:0676-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2012-0676.html
Issue date: 2012-05-21
CVE Names: CVE-2012-1601 CVE-2012-2121
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

Updated kvm packages that fix two security issues and one bug are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate
security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores,
which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability
from the CVE links in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

RHEL Desktop Multi OS (v. 5 client) - x86_64
RHEL Virtualization (v. 5 server) - x86_64

3. Description:

KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) is a full virtualization solution for
Linux on AMD64 and Intel 64 systems. KVM is a Linux kernel module built for
the standard Red Hat Enterprise Linux kernel.

A flaw was found in the way the KVM_CREATE_IRQCHIP ioctl was handled.
Calling this ioctl when at least one virtual CPU (VCPU) already existed
could lead to a NULL pointer dereference later when the VCPU is scheduled
to run. A malicious user in the kvm group on the host could use this flaw
to crash the host. (CVE-2012-1601)

A flaw was found in the way device memory was handled during guest device
removal. Upon successful device removal, memory used by the device was not
properly unmapped from the corresponding IOMMU or properly released from
the kernel, leading to a memory leak. A malicious user in the kvm group on
the host who has the ability to assign a device to a guest could use this
flaw to crash the host. (CVE-2012-2121)

This update also fixes the following bug:

* An off-by-one error in the QEMU guest's memory management could, in rare
cases, cause QEMU-KVM to crash due to a segmentation fault in
tb_invalidate_phys_page_range() if a device initiated DMA into a specific
guest address. In a reported case, this issue presented on a system that
had a guest using the 8139cp network driver. (BZ#816207)

All users of kvm are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain backported patches to correct these issues. Note that the procedure
in the Solution section must be performed before this update will take
effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/articles/11258

The following procedure must be performed before this update will take
effect:

1) Stop all KVM guest virtual machines.

2) Either reboot the hypervisor machine or, as the root user, remove (using
"modprobe -r [module]") and reload (using "modprobe [module]") all of the
following modules which are currently running (determined using "lsmod"):
kvm, ksm, kvm-intel or kvm-amd.

3) Restart the KVM guest virtual machines.

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

808199 - CVE-2012-1601 kernel: kvm: irqchip_in_kernel() and vcpu->arch.apic inconsistency
814149 - CVE-2012-2121 kvm: device assignment page leak
