PostgreSQL encoded multibyte SQL injection

postgresql-multibyte-sql-injection (26627) The risk level is classified as MediumMedium Risk

Description:

PostgreSQL is vulnerable to SQL injection. PostgreSQL fails to properly check multibyte encoded characters. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending specially-crafted SQL statements containing invalid multibyte encoded characters which would allow the attacker to bypass standard string escaping restrictions and possibly view, add, modify or delete information in the back-end database.


Consequences:

Data Manipulation

Remedy:

Upgrade to the latest version of PostgreSQL (7.3.15 or later), (7.4.13 or later), (8.0.8 or later) or (8.1.4 or later), available from the PostgreSQL Web site. See References.
