Description

Updated postgresql packages that fix several security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, 4, and 5.

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 PostgreSQL allows authenticated users to execute security-definer functions. It was possible for an unprivileged user to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the security-definer function. (CVE-2007-2138)

Users of PostgreSQL should upgrade to these updated packages containing PostgreSQL version 8.1.9, 7.4.17, and 7.3.19 which corrects this issue.
