Description Josh Bressers 2007-01-30 16:50:52 EST
An authenticated PostgreSQL user has the ability to crash the database server or
possibly read arbitrary memory for the server process.  This is caused by
insufficient type checking for SQL-language functions.
Comment 1 Josh Bressers 2007-01-30 17:04:21 EST
This flaw also affects RHEL3
Comment 2 Tom Lane 2007-02-04 17:26:28 EST
Note that in RHEL3, the relevant package is rh-postgresql ... we don't ship a plain "postgresql" package in 
that branch, for long-obsolete reasons.
