Gentoo Security Advisory GLSA 200410-16 (PostgreSQL)

The remote host is missing updates announced in advisory GLSA 200410-16.
All PostgreSQL users should upgrade to the latest version: # emerge sync # emerge -pv '>=dev-db/postgresql-7.4.5-r2' # emerge '>=dev-db/postgresql-7.4.5-r2' Upgrade notes: PostgreSQL 7.3.x users should upgrade to the latest available 7.3.x version to retain database compatibility.
The make_oidjoins_check script, part of the PostgreSQL package, is vulnerable to symlink attacks, potentially allowing a local user to overwrite arbitrary files with the rights of the user running the utility.
