Advisory ID: VMSA-2013-0005
Synopsis:    VMware vFabric Postgres security updates
Issue date:  2013-04-04
Updated on:  2013-04-04 (initial advisory)
CVE number:  CVE-2013-1899, CVE-2013-1900, CVE-2013-1901

1. Summary

   VMware vFabric Postgres releases address several security 
   vulnerabilities.

2. Relevant releases

   VMware vFabric Postgres 9.2.2 and earlier
   VMware vFabric Postgres 9.1.6 and earlier

3. Problem Description

   a. VMware vFabric Postgres security vulnerabilities 

      VMware vFabric Postgres has been updated to resolve several
      security issues that were found to be present in Postgres.

      The most serious of these issues, CVE-2013-1899, allows for remote
      deletion of files from the vFabric Postgres data directory. In 
      case vFabric Postgres is not listening for external incoming
      traffic the issue cannot be exploited  remotely.

      Mitigation

      Disallowing incoming external traffic will mitigate the issue for
      CVE-2013-1899. Details can be found in 
     
http://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.1/static/runtime-config-connection.html. 

      The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
      has assigned the names CVE-2013-1899, CVE-2013-1900 and 
      CVE-2013-1901 to these issues.

      Column 4 of the following table lists the action required to
      remediate the vulnerability in each release, if a solution is
      available.
