Vulnerability Summary for CVE-2007-0556

Original release date: 02/05/2007
Last revised: 03/07/2011


The query planner in PostgreSQL before 8.0.11, 8.1 before 8.1.7, and 8.2 before 8.2.2 does not verify that a table is compatible with a "previously made query plan," which allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (server crash) and possibly access database content via an "ALTER COLUMN TYPE" SQL statement, which can be leveraged to read arbitrary memory from the server.


CVSS Severity (version 2.0):
CVSS v2 Base Score: 6.6 MEDIUM
Impact Subscore: 9.2
Exploitability Subscore: 3.9
CVSS Version 2 Metrics:
Access Vector: Network exploitable
Access Complexity: High
Authentication: Required to exploit
Impact Type: Allows unauthorized disclosure of information; Allows disruption of service
