    1. Summary:
    
    Updated postgresql92-postgresql packages that fix multiple security issues
    are now available for Red Hat Software Collections 1.
    
    The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
    Important security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base
    scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each
    vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section.
    
    2. Relevant releases/architectures:
    
    Red Hat Software Collections for RHEL 6 Server - x86_64
    Red Hat Software Collections for RHEL 6 Workstation - x86_64
    
    3. Description:
    
    PostgreSQL is an advanced object-relational database management system
    (DBMS).
    
    Multiple stack-based buffer overflow flaws were found in the date/time
    implementation of PostgreSQL. An authenticated database user could provide
    a specially crafted date/time value that, when processed, could cause
    PostgreSQL to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the
    permissions of the user running PostgreSQL. (CVE-2014-0063)
    
    Multiple integer overflow flaws, leading to heap-based buffer overflows,
    were found in various type input functions in PostgreSQL. An authenticated
    database user could possibly use these flaws to crash PostgreSQL or,
    potentially, execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user
    running PostgreSQL. (CVE-2014-0064)
    
    Multiple potential buffer overflow flaws were found in PostgreSQL.
    An authenticated database user could possibly use these flaws to crash
    PostgreSQL or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the permissions of
    the user running PostgreSQL. (CVE-2014-0065)
    
    It was found that granting an SQL role to a database user in a PostgreSQL
    database without specifying the "ADMIN" option allowed the grantee to
    remove other users from their granted role. An authenticated database user
    could use this flaw to remove a user from an SQL role which they were
    granted access to. (CVE-2014-0060)
    
    A flaw was found in the validator functions provided by PostgreSQL's
    procedural languages (PLs). An authenticated database user could possibly
    use this flaw to escalate their privileges. (CVE-2014-0061)
    
    A race condition was found in the way the CREATE INDEX command performed
    multiple independent lookups of a table that had to be indexed. An
    authenticated database user could possibly use this flaw to escalate their
    privileges. (CVE-2014-0062)
    
    It was found that the chkpass extension of PostgreSQL did not check the
    return value of the crypt() function. An authenticated database user could
    possibly use this flaw to crash PostgreSQL via a null pointer dereference.
    (CVE-2014-0066)
    
    Red Hat would like to thank the PostgreSQL project for reporting these
    issues. Upstream acknowledges Noah Misch as the original reporter of
    CVE-2014-0060 and CVE-2014-0063, Heikki Linnakangas and Noah Misch as the
    original reporters of CVE-2014-0064, Peter Eisentraut and Jozef Mlich as
    the original reporters of CVE-2014-0065, Andres Freund as the original
    reporter of CVE-2014-0061, Robert Haas and Andres Freund as the original
    reporters of CVE-2014-0062, and Honza Horak and Bruce Momjian as the
    original reporters of CVE-2014-0066.
    
    These updated packages upgrade PostgreSQL to version 9.2.7, which fixes
    these issues as well as several non-security issues. Refer to the
    PostgreSQL Release Notes for a full list of changes:
    
    http://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.2/static/release-9-2-7.html
    
    All PostgreSQL users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
    which contain backported patches to correct these issues. If the postgresql
    service is running, it will be automatically restarted after installing
    this update.
    
    4. Solution:
    
    Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
    relevant to your system have been applied.
    
    This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to use the
    Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
    https://access.redhat.com/site/articles/11258
    
    5. Bugs fixed (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/):
