=====================================================================

 

1. Summary:

 

Updated postgresql packages that fix multiple security issues are now

available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

 

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having

Important security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base

scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each

vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section.

 

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

 

RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64

Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server) - i386, ia64, ppc, s390x, x86_64

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64

 

3. Description:

 

PostgreSQL is an advanced object-relational database management system

(DBMS).

 

Multiple stack-based buffer overflow flaws were found in the date/time

implementation of PostgreSQL. An authenticated database user could provide

a specially crafted date/time value that, when processed, could cause

PostgreSQL to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the

permissions of the user running PostgreSQL. (CVE-2014-0063)

 

Multiple integer overflow flaws, leading to heap-based buffer overflows,

were found in various type input functions in PostgreSQL. An authenticated

database user could possibly use these flaws to crash PostgreSQL or,

potentially, execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user

running PostgreSQL. (CVE-2014-0064)

 

Multiple potential buffer overflow flaws were found in PostgreSQL.

An authenticated database user could possibly use these flaws to crash

PostgreSQL or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the permissions of

the user running PostgreSQL. (CVE-2014-0065)

 

It was found that granting an SQL role to a database user in a PostgreSQL

database without specifying the "ADMIN" option allowed the grantee to

remove other users from their granted role. An authenticated database user

could use this flaw to remove a user from an SQL role which they were

granted access to. (CVE-2014-0060)

 

A flaw was found in the validator functions provided by PostgreSQL's

procedural languages (PLs). An authenticated database user could possibly

use this flaw to escalate their privileges. (CVE-2014-0061)

 

A race condition was found in the way the CREATE INDEX command performed

multiple independent lookups of a table that had to be indexed. An

authenticated database user could possibly use this flaw to escalate their

privileges. (CVE-2014-0062)

 

It was found that the chkpass extension of PostgreSQL did not check the

return value of the crypt() function. An authenticated database user could

possibly use this flaw to crash PostgreSQL via a null pointer dereference.

(CVE-2014-0066)

 

Red Hat would like to thank the PostgreSQL project for reporting these

issues. Upstream acknowledges Noah Misch as the original reporter of

CVE-2014-0060 and CVE-2014-0063, Heikki Linnakangas and Noah Misch as the

original reporters of CVE-2014-0064, Peter Eisentraut and Jozef Mlich as

the original reporters of CVE-2014-0065, Andres Freund as the original

reporter of CVE-2014-0061, Robert Haas and Andres Freund as the original

reporters of CVE-2014-0062, and Honza Horak and Bruce Momjian as the

original reporters of CVE-2014-0066.

 

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.

 

4. Solution:

 

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata

relevant to your system have been applied.
