The version of PostgreSQL installed on the remote host is 8.3.x prior to 8.3.20, 8.4.x prior to 8.4.13, 9.0.x prior to 9.0.9, or 9.1.x prior to 9.1.5. It therefore is potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

  • A flaw in contrib/xml2’s xslt_process can be used to read and write arbitrary files. (CVE-2012-3488)

  • An xml_parse() DTD validation flaw can be used to read arbitrary files. (CVE-2012-3489)
