Description

The version of PostgreSQL installed on the remote host is 8.3.x prior to 8.3.18, and is, therefore, potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

  • Permissions on a function called by a trigger are not properly checked. (CVE-2012-0866)

  • Line breaks in object names can be exploited to execute arbitrary SQL commands when reloading a pg_dump file. (CVE-2012-0868)
