rPath Security Advisory: 2009-0086-1
Published: 2009-05-19
    rPath Linux 2

Rating: Minor
Exposure Level Classification:
    Local System User Deterministic Denial of Service
Updated Versions:
    postgresql=conary.rpath.com () rpl:2/8.3.7-0.1-1
    postgresql-contrib=conary.rpath.com () rpl:2/8.3.7-0.1-1
    postgresql-server=conary.rpath.com () rpl:2/8.3.7-0.1-1

rPath Issue Tracking System:


    In previous versions of the postgresql package, authenticated
    users of a postgresql database could cause the postgresql server
    to crash by triggering a failure in converting an error message to
    an encoding selected by the user, by making mismatched encoding
    conversion requests.  In addition, a GiST index corruption bug
    is also addressed by this update; users of GiST indices should
    regenerate GiST indices after updating.
