Package : libdbd-pg-perl
Vulnerability : several
Problem type : local (remote)
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).
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.)

the database allows attackers to cause a denial of service.
For the old stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed

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
