Description

This update of postgresql fixes several minor security vulnerabilities :

  • Postgresql does not properly check privileges during certain RESET ALL operations, which allows remote authenticated users to remove arbitrary parameter settings. (CVE-2010-1975)

  • The PL/Tcl implementation in postgresql loads Tcl code from the pltcl_modules table regardless of the table's ownership and permissions, which allows remote authenticated users with database creation privileges to execute arbitrary Tcl code. (CVE-2010-1170)

  • Postgresql does not properly restrict PL/perl procedures, which allows remote authenticated users with database creation privileges to execute arbitrary Perl code via a crafted script. (CVE-2010-1169)

  • An integer overflow in postgresql allows remote authenticated users to crash the daemon with a SELECT statement. (CVE-2010-0733)
