Title: USN-834-1 -- postgresql-8.1, postgresql-8.3 vulnerabilities
Description: It was discovered that PostgreSQL could be made to unload and reload an already loaded module by using the LOAD command. A remote authenticated attacker could exploit this to cause a denial of service. This issue did not affect Ubuntu 6.06 LTS. Due to an incomplete fix for CVE-2007-6600, RESET ROLE and RESET SESSION AUTHORIZATION operations were allowed inside security-definer functions. A remote authenticated attacker could exploit this to escalate privileges within PostgreSQL. It was discovered that PostgreSQL did not properly perform LDAP authentication under certain circumstances. When configured to use LDAP with anonymous binds, a remote attacker could bypass authentication by supplying an empty password. This issue did not affect Ubuntu 6.06 LTS

Title: DSA-1900-1 postgresql-7.4, postgresql-8.1, postgresql-8.3, postgresql-8.4 -- several
Description: Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in PostgreSQL, an SQL database system. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems: CVE-2009-3229 Authenticated users can shut down the backend server by re-LOAD-ing libraries in $libdir/plugins, if any libraries are present there. CVE-2009-3230 Authenticated non-superusers can gain database superuser privileges if they can create functions and tables due to incorrect execution of functions in functional indexes. CVE-2009-3231 If PostgreSQL is configured with LDAP authentication, and the LDAP configuration allows anonymous binds, it is possible for a user to authenticate themselves with an empty password. In addition, this update contains reliability improvements which do not target security issues. For the old stable distribution, these problems have been fixed in version 1:7.4.26-0etch1 of the postgresql-7.4 source package, and version 8.1.18-0etch1 of the postgresql-8.1 source package. For the stable distribution, these problems have been fixed in version 8.3.8-0lenny1 of the postgresql-8.3 source package. For the unstable distribution, these problems have been fixed in version 8.3.8-1 of the postgresql-8.3 source package, and version 8.4.1-1 of the postgresql-8.4 source package. We recommend that you upgrade your PostgreSQL packages.
