Description

backend/parser/analyze.c in PostgreSQL 8.1.x before 8.1.5 allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) via certain aggregate functions in an UPDATE statement, which are not properly handled during a "MIN/MAX index optimization."

Solution(s)

  • postgres-upgrade-8_1_5

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.
