./databases/postgresql95, Robust, next generation, object-relational DBMS

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 9.5.9, Package name: postgresql95-9.5.9, Maintainer: adam

PostgreSQL is a robust, next-generation, Object-Relational DBMS (ORDBMS),
derived from the Berkeley Postgres database management system. While
PostgreSQL retains the powerful object-relational data model, rich data types
and easy extensibility of Postgres, it replaces the PostQuel query language
with an extended subset of SQL.

PostgreSQL is free and the complete source is available.

This is the meta-package for the PostgreSQL database system.

Log message:
The PostgreSQL Global Development Group has released an update to all supported \ 
versions of our database system, including 9.6.4, 9.5.8, 9.4.13, 9.3.18, and \ 
9.2.22. This release fixes three security issues. It also patches over 50 other \ 
bugs reported over the last three months. Users who are affected by the below \ 
security issues should update as soon as possible. Users affected by \ 
CVE-2017-7547 will need to perform additional steps after upgrading to resolve \ 
the issue. Other users should plan to update at the next convenient downtime.

Three security vulnerabilities have been closed by this release:
* CVE-2017-7546: Empty password accepted in some authentication methods
* CVE-2017-7547: The "pg_user_mappings" catalog view discloses \ 
passwords to users lacking server privileges
* CVE-2017-7548: lo_put() function ignores ACLs

environment variable to control connections, and users who rely on security \ 
isolation between database users when using foreign servers, should update as \ 
soon as possible. Other users should plan to update at the next convenient \ 
downtime.

Security Issues
---------------
Two security holes have been closed by this release:

CVE-2016-5423: certain nested CASE expressions can cause the server to crash.
CVE-2016-5424: database and role names with embedded special characters can \ 
allow code injection during administrative operations like pg_dumpall.
The fix for the second issue also adds an option, -reuse-previous, to psql's \ 
\connect command. pg_dumpall will also refuse to handle database and role names \ 
containing line breaks after the update. For more information on these issues \ 
and how they affect backwards-compatibility, see the Release Notes.

Bug Fixes and Improvements
--------------------------
This update also fixes a number of bugs reported in the last few months. Some of \ 
these issues affect only version 9.5, but many affect all supported versions:

Fix misbehaviors of IS NULL/IS NOT NULL with composite values
Fix three areas where INSERT ... ON CONFLICT failed to work properly with other \ 
SQL features.
Make INET and CIDR data types properly reject bad IPv6 values
Prevent crash in "point ## lseg" operator for NaN input
Avoid possible crash in pg_get_expr()
Fix several one-byte buffer over-reads in to_number()
Don't needlessly plan query if WITH NO DATA is specified
Avoid crash-unsafe state in expensive heap_update() paths
Fix hint bit update during WAL replay of row locking operations
Avoid unnecessary "could not serialize access" with FOR KEY SHARE
Avoid crash in postgres -C when the specified variable is a null string
Fix two issues with logical decoding and subtransactions
Ensure that backends see up-to-date statistics for shared catalogs
Prevent possible failure when vacuuming multixact IDs in an upgraded database
When a manual ANALYZE specifies columns, don't reset changes_since_analyze
Fix ANALYZE's overestimation of n_distinct for columns with nulls
Fix bug in b-tree mark/restore processing
Fix building of large (bigger than shared_buffers) hash indexes
Prevent infinite loop in GiST index build with NaN values
Fix possible crash during a nearest-neighbor indexscan
Fix "PANIC: failed to add BRIN tuple" error
Prevent possible crash during background worker shutdown
Many fixes for issues in parallel pg_dump and pg_restore
Make pg_basebackup accept -Z 0 as no compression
