Description

crypt_blowfish before 1.1, as used in PHP before 5.3.7 on certain platforms, PostgreSQL before 8.4.9, and other products, does not properly handle 8-bit characters, which makes it easier for context-dependent attackers to determine a cleartext password by leveraging knowledge of a password hash.

Solution(s)

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