A rogue server could provide a specially-crafted database warning or specially-crafted DBD statement, which once processed by the perl-DBD-Pg interface would lead to perl-DBD-Pg based process crash.

A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted YAML document, which once processed by the perl-YAML-LibYAML interface would lead to perl-YAML-LibYAML based process crash.

(one for libdbd-pg-perl / perl-DBD-Pg and one for libyaml-libyaml-perl / perl-YAML-LibYAML) Thank you && Regards, Jan. -- Jan iankko Lieskovsky / Red Hat Security Response Team
