PACKAGE        :postgresql
SUMMARY        :buffer overruns
DATE           :2002-08-26 09:40 UTC

OVERVIEW

Several buffer overruns found in PostgreSQL

DETAIL

The PostgreSQL Global Development Team has identified and
addressed the following buffer overruns in PostgreSQL:

* in handling long datetime input
* in repeat()
* in lpad() and rpad() with multibyte
* in SET TIME ZONE and TZ env var

More information can be found on the following adresses:

SOLUTION

It is recommended that all Gentoo Linux users who are running
dev-db/postgresql-7.2.1-r2 and earlier update their systems
as follows:

emerge rsync
emerge postgresql
emerge clean

postgresql-7.2.2 is currently only available for x86. Sparc and ppc will
be available when it's been tested on these archs.
