Gmane
From: Connie Sieh <csieh-13hema8v3vg <at> public.gmane.org>
Subject: Security ERRATA Moderate: postgresql on SL5.x i386/x86_64
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.scientific.errata
Date: Friday 14th September 2012 21:28:01 UTC (over 4 years ago)
Synopsis:          Moderate: postgresql security update
Issue Date:        2012-09-13
CVE Numbers:       CVE-2012-3488

It was found that the optional PostgreSQL xml2 contrib module allowed local
files and remote URLs to be read and written to with the privileges of the
database server when parsing Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformations
(XSLT). An unprivileged database user could use this flaw to read and write
to local files (such as the database's configuration files) and remote URLs
they would otherwise not have access to by issuing a specially-crafted SQL
query. (CVE-2012-3488)

We would like to thank the PostgreSQL project for reporting this
issue. Upstream acknowledges Peter Eisentraut as the original reporter.

If the postgresql service is running, it will be automatically restarted
after installing this update.
