Fedora Legacy Update Advisory

Synopsis: Updated PostgreSQL packages fix security issues
Advisory ID: FLSA:152844
Issue date: 2005-07-16
Product: Red Hat Linux, Fedora Core
Keywords: Bugfix
CVE Names: CAN-2004-0977 CAN-2005-0227 CAN-2005-0244
CAN-2005-0245 CAN-2005-0246 CAN-2005-0247

1. Topic:

Updated PostgreSQL packages to fix various security flaws are now available.

PostgreSQL is an advanced Object-Relational database management system (DBMS).

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 7.3 - i386
Red Hat Linux 9 - i386
Fedora Core 1 - i386

3. Problem description:

Trustix has identified improper temporary file usage in the make_oidjoins_check script. It is possible that an attacker could overwrite arbitrary file contents as the user running the make_oidjoins_check script. This script has been removed from the RPM file since it has no use to ordinary users. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0977 to this issue.

A flaw in the LOAD command in PostgreSQL was discovered. A local user could use this flaw to load arbitrary shared librarys and therefore execute arbitrary code, gaining the privileges of the PostgreSQL server. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0227 to this issue.

A permission checking flaw in PostgreSQL was discovered. A local user could bypass the EXECUTE permission check for functions by using the CREATE AGGREGATE command. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0244 to this issue.

Multiple buffer overflows were found in PL/PgSQL. A database user who has permissions to create plpgsql functions could trigger this flaw which could lead to arbitrary code execution, gaining the privileges of the PostgreSQL server. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CAN-2005-0245 and CAN-2005-0247 to these issues.

A flaw in the integer aggregator (intagg) contrib module for PostgreSQL was found. A user could create carefully crafted arrays and cause a denial of service (crash). The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0246 to this issue.

Users of PostgreSQL are advised to update to these erratum packages which are not vulnerable to these issues.

4. Solution:

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

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which are not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note that you can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains the desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via yum and apt. Many people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use yum issue:

yum update

or to use apt:

apt-get update; apt-get upgrade

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate RPMs being upgraded on your system. This assumes that you have yum or apt-get configured for obtaining Fedora Legacy content. Please visit http://www.fedoralegacy.org/docs for directions on how to configure yum and apt-get.
