Debian Security Advisory DSA-1780-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Florian Weimer

- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : libdbd-pg-perl
Vulnerability : several
Problem type : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2009-0663 CVE-2009-134

Two vulnerabilities have been discovered in libdbd-pg-perl, the DBI
driver module for PostgreSQL database access (DBD::Pg).

CVE-2009-0663

A heap-based buffer overflow may allow attackers to execute arbitrary
code through applications which read rows from the database using the
pg_getline and getline functions. (More common retrieval methods,
such as selectall_arrayref and fetchrow_array, are not affected.)

CVE-2009-1341

A memory leak in the routine which unquotes BYTEA values returned from
the database allows attackers to cause a denial of service.

For the old stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed
in version 1.49-2+etch1.

For the stable distribution (lenny) and the unstable distribution (sid),
these problems have been fixed in version 2.1.3-1 before the release of
lenny.

We recommend that you upgrade your libdbd-pg-perl package.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------
