Description

PostgreSQL 8.1.0 through 8.1.2 allows authenticated database users to gain additional privileges via "knowledge of the backend protocol" using a crafted SET ROLE to other database users, a different vulnerability than CVE-2006-0678.

Solution(s)

  • postgres-upgrade-8_1_3

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.
