Debian: New libdbd-pg-perl packages fix potential code execution

Two vulnerabilities have been discovered in libdbd-pg-perl, the DBI driver module for PostgreSQL database access (DBD::Pg). 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.) A memory leak in the routine which unquotes BYTEA values returned from the database allows attackers to cause a denial of service. Updated packages are available from security.debian.org.

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.
