Advisory Release Date: 2021-07-08 18:38 Pacific
Advisory Updated Date: 2021-07-12 21:51 Pacific
Severity: Important

Issue Overview:

A flaw was discovered in postgresql where arbitrary SQL statements can be executed given a suitable SECURITY DEFINER function. An attacker, with EXECUTE permission on the function, can execute arbitrary SQL as the owner of the function. (CVE-2019-10208)

A flaw was found in postgresql. If a client application that creates additional database connections only reuses the basic connection parameters while dropping security-relevant parameters, an opportunity for a man-in-the-middle attack, or the ability to observe clear-text transmissions, could exist. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to data confidentiality and integrity as well as system availability. (CVE-2020-25694)
