=====================================================================
Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Moderate: postgresql84 security update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2011:0198-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2011-0198.html
Issue date: 2011-02-03
CVE Names: CVE-2010-4015
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

Updated postgresql84 packages that fix one security issue are now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate
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:

RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server) - i386, ia64, ppc, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64

3. Description:

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

A stack-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way PostgreSQL
processed certain tokens from an SQL query when the intarray module was
enabled on a particular database. An authenticated database user running a
specially-crafted SQL query could use this flaw to cause a temporary denial
of service (postgres daemon crash) or, potentially, execute arbitrary code
with the privileges of the database server. (CVE-2010-4015)

Red Hat would like to thank Geoff Keating of the Apple Product Security
team for reporting this issue.

These updated postgresql84 packages upgrade PostgreSQL to version 8.4.7.
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 this issue. 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
http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/docs/DOC-11259
