USN-369-2: postgresql-8.1 vulnerabilities
Posted on: 11/01/2006 12:35 PM

A new postgresql-8.1 vulnerabilities update is available for Ubuntu Linux. Here the announcement:

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-369-2 November 01, 2006
postgresql-8.1 vulnerabilities
CVE-2006-5540, CVE-2006-5541, CVE-2006-5542
==========================
==========================
=========

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.10:
postgresql-8.1 8.1.4-7ubuntu0.1

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.

Details follow:

USN-369-1 fixed three minor PostgreSQL 8.1 vulnerabilities for Ubuntu 6.06 =
LTS.
This update provides the corresponding update for Ubuntu 6.10.

Original advisory details:

Michael Fuhr discovered an incorrect type check when handling unknown
literals. By attempting to coerce such a literal to the ANYARRAY type,
a local authenticated attacker could cause a server crash. (CVE-2006-5541)

Josh Drake and Alvaro Herrera reported a crash when using aggregate
functions in UPDATE statements. A local authenticated attacker could
exploit this to crash the server backend. This update disables this
construct, since it is not very well defined and forbidden by the SQL
standard. (CVE-2006-5540)

Sergey Koposov discovered a flaw in the duration logging. This could
cause a server crash under certain circumstances. (CVE-2006-5542)

Please note that these flaws can usually not be exploited through web
and other applications that use a database and are exposed to
untrusted input, so these flaws do not pose a threat in usual setups.
