Description Josh Bressers 2005-05-03 17:55:30 UTC
Two serious security errors have been found in PostgreSQL 7.3 and newer
releases.  These errors at least allow an unprivileged database user to
crash the backend process, and may make it possible for an unprivileged
user to gain the privileges of a database superuser.

Comment 2 Josh Bressers 2005-05-03 17:56:51 UTC
This issue should also affect RHEL3

Comment 3 Tom Lane 2005-05-11 17:41:33 UTC
Updates are now in QA for both RHEL4 and RHEL3.  These issues do not affect AS2.1.
