Ubuntu 6.06 LTS / 8.04 LTS / 9.04 / 9.10 : postgresql-8.1, postgresql-8.3, postgresql-8.4 vulnerability (USN-933-1)

Description

It was discovered that PostgreSQL did not properly sanitize its input when using substring() with a SELECT statement. A remote authenticated attacker could exploit this to cause a denial of service via application crash.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
