Synopsis: Moderate: perl-DBD-Pg security update
Issue Date: 2012-07-25
CVE Numbers: CVE-2012-1151
Perl DBI is a database access Application Programming Interface (API) for
the Perl language. perl-DBD-Pg allows Perl applications to access
PostgreSQL database servers.
Two format string flaws were found in perl-DBD-Pg. A specially-crafted
database warning or error message from a server could cause an application
using perl-DBD-Pg to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running the application. (CVE-2012-1151)
All users of perl-DBD-Pg are advised to upgrade to this updated package,
which contains a backported patch to fix these issues. Applications using
perl-DBD-Pg must be restarted for the update to take effect.
