Announcement ID: openSUSE-SU-2013:0628-1
Rating: important
References: #812525
Cross-References: CVE-2013-1899 CVE-2013-1900 CVE-2013-1901

Affected Products:
openSUSE 12.3
______________________________________________________________________________

An update that fixes three vulnerabilities is now available.

Description:


postgresql was updated to version 9.2.4 (bnc#812525):
* CVE-2013-1899: Fix insecure parsing of server
command-line switches. A connection request containing
a database name that begins with "-" could be crafted
to damage or destroy files within the server's data
directory, even if the request is eventually rejected.
* CVE-2013-1900: Reset OpenSSL randomness state in each
postmaster child process. This avoids a scenario
wherein random numbers generated by "contrib/pgcrypto"
functions might be relatively easy for another database
user to guess. The risk is only significant when the
postmaster is configured with ssl = on but most
connections don't use SSL encryption.
* CVE-2013-1901: Make REPLICATION privilege checks test
current user not authenticated user. An unprivileged
database user could exploit this mistake to call
pg_start_backup() or pg_stop_backup(), thus possibly
interfering with creation of routine backups.
* See the release notes for the rest of the changes:
