Description

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in PostgreSQL database server.

CVE-2013-1899Mitsumasa Kondo and Kyotaro Horiguchi of NTT Open Source Software Center discovered that it was possible for a connection request containing a database name that begins with - to be crafted that can damage or destroy files within a server's data directory. Anyone with access to the port the PostgreSQL server listens on can initiate this request.

CVE-2013-1900 Random numbers generated by contrib/pgcrypto functions may be easy for another database user to guess.

CVE-2013-1901 An unprivileged user could run commands that could interfere with in-progress backups.
