Description

The make_oidjoins_check script in PostgreSQL 7.4.5 and earlier allows local users to overwrite files via a symlink attack on temporary files.

Solution(s)

  • postgres-upgrade-7_3_8
  • postgres-upgrade-7_4_6

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.
