Description

PostgreSQL before 8.3.7, 8.2.13, 8.1.17, 8.0.21, and 7.4.25 allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (stack consumption and crash) by triggering a failure in the conversion of a localized error message to a client-specified encoding, as demonstrated using mismatched encoding conversion requests.

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.
