Description Tomas Hoger 2009-09-09 09:03:29 EDT
Quoting upstream PostgreSQL security page:
  http://www.postgresql.org/support/security.html

  If PostgreSQL is configured with LDAP authentication, and your LDAP
  configuration allows anonymous binds, it is possible for a user to
  authenticate themselves with an empty password.

Affected versions: 8.3, 8.2

Fixed in versions: 8.3.8, 8.2.14

Severity: A - A vulnerability that is exploitable for privilege escalation without requiring a prior login.
