Trustix Secure Linux Security Advisory #2006-0059

Package names:     postgresql
Summary:           Multiple vulnerabilities
Date:              2006-10-27
Affected versions: Trustix Secure Linux 2.2
                   Trustix Secure Linux 3.0

Package description:
  postgresql
  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). The postgresql package
  includes the client programs and libraries that you'll need to access
  a PostgreSQL DBMS server. These PostgreSQL client programs are programs
  that directly manipulate the internal structure of PostgreSQL databases
  on a PostgreSQL server. These client programs can be located on the
  same machine with the PostgreSQL server, or may be on a remote machine
  which accesses a PostgreSQL server over a network connection. This
  package contains the docs in HTML for the whole package, as well as
  command-line utilities for managing PostgreSQL databases on a
  PostgreSQL server.

Problem description:
  postgresql < TSL 3.0 > < TSL 2.2 > < TSEL 2 >
  - New Upstream.
  - SECURITY Fix: Some vulnerabilities have been reported in PostgreSQL,
    which can be exploited by malicious users to cause a DoS (SA22562).
  - An incorrect type check before coercing unknown literals into the
    ANYARRY type can be exploited to cause a crash when converting
    certain literals into ANYARRAY.
  - An error exists within the handling of aggregate functions in UPDATE
    statements, which can be exploited to crash the server backend.
  - An error within the logging of V3-protocol execute messages of
    ROLLBACK or COMMIT statements can be exploited to cause a crash.

Action:
  We recommend that all systems with this package installed be upgraded.
  Please note that if you do not need the functionality provided by this
