Vendor Statements (disclaimer)

Official Statement from Red Hat (09/24/2009)

Not vulnerable. This issue did not affect the versions of PostgreSQL as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, 4, or 5, as they do not support LDAP authentication, which was introduced upstream in version 8.2. This issue was addressed in Red Hat Application Stack v2 via https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2009-1461.html .
