./databases/postgresql95-client, PostgreSQL database client programs

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


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 9.5.9, Package name: postgresql95-client-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 package contains the database client programs.

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

Log message:
The PostgreSQL Global Development Group has released an update to all supported \ 
versions of our database system, including 9.6.3, 9.5.7, 9.4.12, 9.3.17, and \ 
9.2.21. This release fixes three security issues. It also patches a number of \ 
other bugs reported over the last three months. Users who use the PGREQUIRESSL \ 
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.

Log message:
This release fixes a number of issues reported by users over the last two \ 
months. Most database administrators should plan to upgrade at the next \ 
available downtime, unless they have been affected directly by the fixed issues.

Log message:
The PostgreSQL Global Development Group has released an update to all supported \ 
versions of our database system, including 9.5.2, 9.4.7, 9.3.12, 9.2.16, and \ 
9.1.21. This release fixes two security issues and one index corruption issue in \ 
version 9.5. It also contains a variety of bug fixes for earlier versions. Users \ 
of PostgreSQL 9.5.0 or 9.5.1 should update as soon as possible.

This release closes security hole CVE-2016-2193, where a query plan might get \ 
reused for more than one ROLE in the same session. This could cause the wrong \ 
set of Row Level Security (RLS) policies to be used for the query.

The update also fixes CVE-2016-3065, a server crash bug triggered by using \ 
pageinspect with BRIN index pages. Since an attacker might be able to expose a \ 
few bytes of server memory, this crash is being treated as a security issue.
