USN-933-1: PostgreSQL vulnerability

28 April 2010

PostgreSQL vulnerability



It was discovered that PostgreSQL did not properly sanitize its input when
using substring() with a SELECT statement. A remote authenticated attacker
could exploit this to cause a denial of service via application crash.

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 9.10
Ubuntu 9.04
Ubuntu 8.04
Ubuntu 6.06

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