RHSA-2004-489: rh Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the rh packages
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
Updated rh-postgresql packages that fix various bugs are now available.
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).
Trustix has identified improper temporary file usage in the
make_oidjoins_check script. It is possible that a possible hacker could
overwrite arbitrary file contents as the user running the
make_oidjoins_check script. This script has been removed from the RPM file
since it has no use to ordinary users. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0977 to
Additionally, the following non-security issues have been addressed:
- Fixed a low probability risk for loss of recently committed transactions.
- Fixed a low probability risk for loss of older data due to failure to
update transaction status.
- A lock file problem that sometimes prevented automatic restart after a
system crash has been fixed.
All users of rh-postgresql should upgrade to these updated packages, which
resolve these issues.
