Description


Updated postgresql packages that fix one security issue are now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

Red Hat Product Security 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).

A memory leak error was discovered in the crypt() function of the pgCrypto
extension. An authenticated attacker could possibly use this flaw to
disclose a limited amount of the server memory. (CVE-2015-5288)

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.
Please see https://www.redhat.com/footer/terms-of-use.html
