Several vulnerabilities were reported in PostgreSQL. A remote user can access and modify data communicated by the target system. A remote authenticated user can obtain foreign passwords on the target system. A remote authenticated user can obtain potentially sensitive information from tables on the target system.|
A remote authenticated user can invoke certain selectivity estimation functions that do not check user privileges before providing information from pg_statistic to obtain potentially sensitive information from ostensibly restricted tables [CVE-2017-7484].
The system does not enforce the PGREQUIRESSL environment variable settings. As a result, a remote user that can conduct a man-in-the-middle attack can cause an SSL connection to be downgraded to use no encryption to access and modify data communicated by the target system [CVE-2017-7485].
The pg_user_mappings access qualifications are not properly implemented. A remote authenticated user may be able to view foreign server passwords [CVE-2017-7486].
Andrew Wheelwright, Daniel Gustafsson, and Robert Haas reported these vulnerabilities.
