Description

PostgreSQL 7.3 before 7.3.13, 7.4 before 7.4.16, 8.0 before 8.0.11, 8.1 before 8.1.7, and 8.2 before 8.2.2 allows attackers to disable certain checks for the data types of SQL function arguments, which allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (server crash) and possibly access database content.

Solution(s)

  • postgres-upgrade-7_3_13
  • postgres-upgrade-7_4_16
  • postgres-upgrade-8_0_11
  • postgres-upgrade-8_1_7
  • postgres-upgrade-8_2_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.
