Description

PostgreSQL 7.3.x through 8.0.x gives public EXECUTE access to certain character conversion functions, which allows unprivileged users to call those functions with malicious values, with unknown impact, aka the "Character conversion vulnerability."

Solution(s)

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.
