Description

Updated postgresql packages that fix two security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

PostgreSQL is an advanced Object-Relational database management system (DBMS).

A flaw was found in the way the PostgreSQL server handles certain SQL-language functions. An authenticated user could execute a sequence of commands which could crash the PostgreSQL server or possibly read from arbitrary memory locations. A user would need to have permissions to drop and add database tables to be able to exploit this issue (CVE-2007-0555).

A denial of service flaw was found affecting the PostgreSQL server running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 systems. An authenticated user could execute a SQL command which could crash the PostgreSQL server. (CVE-2006-5540)

Users of PostgreSQL should upgrade to these updated packages containing PostgreSQL version 7.4.16 or 7.3.18, which correct these issues.
