Arbitrary Code Execution

Veracode Vulnerability Database





PostgreSQL is an advanced object-relational database management system (DBMS). The pg_dump utility inserted object names literally into comments in the SQL script it produces. An unprivileged database user could create an object whose name includes a newline followed by an SQL command. This SQL command might then be executed by a privileged user during later restore of the backup dump, allowing privilege escalation. (CVE-2012-0868) CREATE TRIGGER did not do a permissions check on the trigger function to be called. This could possibly allow an authenticated database user to call a privileged trigger function on data of their choosing. (CVE-2012-0866) All PostgreSQL users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. If the postgresql service is running, it will be automatically restarted after installing this update.
