CVE-2019-9193 PostgreSQL in NetApp Products

circle-check-alt This advisory should be considered the single source of current, up-to-date, authorized and accurate information from NetApp.

Summary

Multiple NetApp products incorporate PostgreSQL.

** DISPUTED ** In PostgreSQL 9.3 through 11.2, the "COPY TO/FROM PROGRAM" function allows superusers and users in the 'pg_read_server_files' group to execute arbitrary code in the context of the database's operating system user. This functionality is enabled by default and can be abused to run arbitrary operating system commands on Windows, Linux, and macOS.

NOTE: Third parties claim/state this is not an issue because PostgreSQL functionality for "COPY TO/FROM PROGRAM" is acting as intended. References state that in PostgreSQL, a superuser can execute commands as the server user without using the "COPY FROM PROGRAM". Furthermore, members in 'pg_read_server_files' can run commands only if either the 'pg_execute_server_program' role or superuser are granted.

The PostgreSQL community has issued an official statement declaring this to not be a vulnerability but a feature of PostgreSQL that is similar to those offered in competing products. The original reporter to MITRE has agreed with the position of the PostgreSQL community and issued a retraction of the CVE.

Impact

None - no longer considered a vulnerability.
