Comment 1 Patrick Lauer gentoo-dev 2009-09-09 22:58:47 UTC
8.4.1, 8.3.8, 8.2.14, 8.1.18, 8.0.22 are in

7.4.26 needs some autotools love for bump and is close to EOL upstream.

CVE-2009-3229 (http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2009-3229):
  The core server component in PostgreSQL 8.4 before 8.4.1, 8.3 before
  8.3.8, and 8.2 before 8.2.14 allows remote authenticated users to
  cause a denial of service (backend shutdown) by "re-LOAD-ing"
  libraries from a certain plugins directory.

CVE-2009-3230 (http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2009-3230):
  The core server component in PostgreSQL 8.4 before 8.4.1, 8.3 before
  8.3.8, 8.2 before 8.2.14, 8.1 before 8.1.18, 8.0 before 8.0.22, and
  7.4 before 7.4.26 does not use the appropriate privileges for the (1)
  RESET ROLE and (2) RESET SESSION AUTHORIZATION operations, which
  allows remote authenticated users to gain privileges.  NOTE: this is
  due to an incomplete fix for CVE-2007-6600.

CVE-2009-3231 (http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2009-3231):
  The core server component in PostgreSQL 8.3 before 8.3.8 and 8.2
  before 8.2.14, when using LDAP authentication with anonymous binds,
  allows remote attackers to bypass authentication via an empty
  password.

Comment 3 Patrick Lauer gentoo-dev 2009-10-03 16:28:47 UTC
7.4.26 also commited. All slots have new enough versions available.
Comment 4 Patrick Lauer gentoo-dev 2009-11-05 21:36:02 UTC
Ok, this was a bit confusing.

Since we intended to mask dev-db/libpq and dev-db/postgresql I focussed on dev-db/postgresql-{base,server}. Those have had new enough versions now.

Because the keywording was slowed down I've bumped libpq and postgresql now.
So both sets of packages should have new enough versions. Sorry for the delay.

 There is a stabilisation bug open in bug 285475 which is blocking other stabilisations, because of some issues.  The bug has patches attached, maybe they should be incorporated.

Comment 6 Patrick Lauer gentoo-dev 2010-07-11 22:38:10 UTC
dev-db/postgresql is now gone. Close bug?
Comment 7 Aaron W. Swenson gentoo-dev 2010-09-24 09:08:35 UTC
This should be resolved along with bug 320967
