MDKA-2005:044: postgresql Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the postgresql package
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKA-2005:044 (postgresql).
A number of bugs are corrected in PostgreSQL version 8.0.4 so an update
for Mandrivalinux 2006 is now available (PostgreSQL 8.0.3 was provided).
Fixes include various memory leakage fixes, improved checking for
partially-written WAL pages, a fix for an error that allowed 'VACUUM'
to remove ctid chains too soon, and other fixes.
A dump/reload of the databases are not required when upgrading from the
provided 8.0.3 version, but may be required if upgrading from an ealier
version (ie. upgrading from Mandrivalinux LE2005).
