Description

PostgreSQL 8.0.x before 8.0.6 and 8.1.x before 8.1.2, when running on Windows, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (postmaster exit and no new connections) via a large number of simultaneous connection requests.

Solution(s)

  • postgres-upgrade-8_0_6
  • postgres-upgrade-8_1_2

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.
