Description

The core server component in PostgreSQL 8.4 before 8.4.1, 8.3 before 8.3.8, and 8.2 before 8.2.14 allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (backend shutdown) by "re-LOAD-ing" libraries from a certain plugins directory.

Solution(s)

  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-dev-db-postgresql-base
  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-dev-db-postgresql-server

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
