18 October 2006

Pike vulnerability

Releases

Details

An SQL injection was discovered in Pike's PostgreSQL module.
Applications using a PostgreSQL database and uncommon character
encodings could be fooled into running arbitrary SQL commands, which
could result in privilege escalation within the application, application
data exposure, or denial of service.

Please refer to http://www.ubuntu.com/usn/usn-288-1 for more detailled
information.

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 5.04
  • pike7.6-pg - 7.6.13-1ubuntu0.1

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