Description


Updated postgresql packages that fix one security issue are now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate
security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in
the References section.

PostgreSQL is an advanced object-relational database management system
(DBMS).

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)

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

All PostgreSQL users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain a backported patch to correct this issue. If the postgresql
service is running, it will be automatically restarted after installing
this update.
