Posted on: 02/28/2006 01:04 PM

Fedora Legacy Update Advisory

Synopsis: Updated PostgreSQL packages fix security issues
Advisory ID: FLSA:157366
Issue date: 2006-02-27
Product: Red Hat Linux, Fedora Core
Keywords: Bugfix
CVE Names: CVE-2005-1409 CVE-2005-1410
---------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Topic:

Updated postgresql packages that fix several security vulnerabilities
and risks of data loss are now available.

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).

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 9 - i386
Fedora Core 1 - i386
Fedora Core 2 - i386

3. Problem description:

The PostgreSQL community discovered two distinct errors in initial
system catalog entries that could allow authorized database users to
crash the database and possibly escalate their privileges. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the
names CVE-2005-1409 and CVE-2005-1410 to these issues.

Although installing this update will protect new (freshly initdb'd)
database installations from these errors, administrators MUST TAKE
MANUAL ACTION to repair the errors in pre-existing databases. The
appropriate procedures are explained at
http://www.postgresql.org/docs/8.0/static/release-7-4-8.html
for Fedora Core 2 users, or
http://www.postgresql.org/docs/8.0/static/release-7-3-10.html
for Fedora Core 1 and Red Hat Linux 9 users.

This update also includes fixes for several other errors, including two
race conditions that could result in apparent data inconsistency or
actual data loss.

All users of PostgreSQL are advised to upgrade to these updated packages
and to apply the recommended manual corrections to existing databases.

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.
