Description Murray McAllister 2014-02-14 07:43:32 UTC
It was found that the chkpass extension did not check the result of a call to crypt(). An authenticated database user could possibly trigger this flaw and cause PostgreSQL to crash.

Acknowledgements:

Red Hat would like to thank the PostgreSQL project for reporting this issue. Upstream acknowledges Honza Horak and Bruce Momjian as the original reporters.

This is now public, although unfortunately it looks like it has two CVEs fixed in one patch (CVE-2014-0065 for buffer overruns, CVE-2014-0066 for crypt())
