Arch Linux Security Advisory ASA-201705-24
Date : 2017-05-30
CVE-ID : CVE-2017-7485
Package : postgresql-libs
Type : man-in-the-middle
Remote : Yes
Link : https://security.archlinux.org/AVG-280
The package postgresql-libs before version 9.6.3-1 is vulnerable to
Upgrade to 9.6.3-1.
# pacman -Syu "postgresql-libs>=9.6.3-1"
The problem has been fixed upstream in version 9.6.3.
A security issue has been found in the libpq component of PostgreSQL <
9.6.3, where the PGREQUIRESSL was no longer enforcing a SSL/TLS
connection to a PostgreSQL server. An active Man-in-the-Middle attacker
could use this flaw to strip the SSL/TLS protection from a connection
between a client and a server.
A remote attacker in position of man-in-the-middle can intercept and
alter every communication between a vulnerable client and a server.
