----------------------------------------------------------------------
Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Updated rh-postgresql packages
Advisory ID: RHSA-2004:489-01
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2004-489.html
Issue date: 2004-12-20
Updated on: 2004-12-20
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Keywords: PostgreSQL
Obsoletes: RHBA-2004:307
CVE Names: CAN-2004-0977
----------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary:

Updated rh-postgresql packages that fix various bugs are now available.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 3 - i386, ia64, ppc, ppc64, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Desktop version 3 - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Problem 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).

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.

Additionally, the following non-security issues have been addressed:

- - Fixed a low probability risk for loss of recently committed transactions.

- - Fixed a low probability risk for loss of older data due to failure to update transaction status.

- - A lock file problem that sometimes prevented automatic restart after a system crash has been fixed.

All users of rh-postgresql should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve 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 Red Hat Network. Many people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate RPMs being upgraded on your system.

If up2date fails to connect to Red Hat Network due to SSL Certificate Errors, you need to install a version of the up2date client with an updated certificate. The latest version of up2date is available from the Red Hat FTP site and may also be downloaded directly from the RHN website:

https://rhn.redhat.com/help/latest-up2date.pxt

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

130814 - PostgreSQL can lose committed transactions
130989 - a bug in rh-postgresql.spec file
134090 - Postgres's init script does not remove stale PID file
136300 - CAN-2004-0977 temporary file vulnerabilities in make_oidjoins_check script
136949 - PostgreSQL data loss risk and minor security issues
