Name        : sepostgresql
Product     : Fedora 10
Version     : 8.3.6
Release     : 2.1634.fc10
URL         : http://code.google.com/p/sepgsql/
Summary     : Security Enhanced PostgreSQL
Description :
Security Enhanced PostgreSQL is an extension of PostgreSQL
based on SELinux security policy, that applies fine grained
mandatory access control to many objects within the database,
and takes advantage of user authorization integrated within
the operating system. SE-PostgreSQL works as a userspace
reference monitor to check any SQL query.

Update Information:

The prior version checks row-level permission after evaluation of WHERE clause,
but it also means injecting a malicious function in WHERE clause enables to
fetch contents of invisible tuple.  This fix change the order. Row-level
permission check is done prior to WHERE clause.
