Description

PostgreSQL (pgsql) 7.4.x, 7.2.x, and other versions allows local users to load arbitrary shared libraries and execute code via the LOAD extension.

Solution(s)

  • postgres-upgrade-7_3_9
  • postgres-upgrade-7_4_7
  • postgres-upgrade-8_0_1

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.
