Problem type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2009-0663 CVE-2009-134

Two vulnerabilities have been discovered in libdbd-pg-perl, the DBI
driver module for PostgreSQL database access (DBD::Pg).

CVE-2009-0663

  A heap-based buffer overflow may allow attackers to execute arbitrary
  code through applications which read rows from the database using the
  pg_getline and getline functions.  (More common retrieval methods,
  such as selectall_arrayref and fetchrow_array, are not affected.)

CVE-2009-1341

  A memory leak in the routine which unquotes BYTEA values returned from
  the database allows attackers to cause a denial of service.

For the old stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed
in version 1.49-2+etch1.

For the stable distribution (lenny) and the unstable distribution (sid),
these problems have been fixed in version 2.1.3-1 before the release of
lenny.

We recommend that you upgrade your libdbd-pg-perl package.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
