./databases/postgresql96, Robust, next generation, object-relational DBMS

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


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 9.6.18nb1, Package name: postgresql96-9.6.18nb1, 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.

PostgreSQL 12.3, 11.8, 10.13, 9.6.18, and 9.5.22 Released!

Posted on 2020-05-14 by PostgreSQL Global Development Group
The PostgreSQL Global Development Group has released an update to all supported \ 
versions of our database system, including 12.3, 11.8, 10.13, 9.6.18, and \ 
9.5.22. This release fixes one security issue found in the PostgreSQL server and \ 
over 75 bugs reported over the last three months.

Please plan to update at your earliest convenience.

Security Issues

CVE-2020-10733: Windows installer runs executables from uncontrolled directories.
Versions Affected: 9.5 - 12. The security team does not test unsupported \ 
versions, but this issue existed before PostgreSQL 9.5.

The Windows installer for PostgreSQL invokes system-provided executables that do \ 
not have fully-qualified paths. Executables in the directory where the installer \ 
loads or the current working directory take precedence over the intended \ 
executables. An attacker having permission to add files into one of those \ 
directories can use this to execute arbitrary code with the installer's \ 
administrative rights.

The PostgreSQL project thanks Hou JingYi (@hjy79425575) for reporting this problem.

Bug Fixes and Improvements

This update also fixes over 75 bugs that were reported in the last several \ 
months. Some of these issues affect only version 12, but may also affect all \ 
supported versions.

Some of these fixes include:

Several fixes for GENERATED columns, including an issue where it was possible to \ 
crash or corrupt data in a table when the output of the generated column was the \ 
exact copy of a physical column on the table, e.g. if the expression called a \ 
function which could return its own input.
Several fixes for ALTER TABLE, including ensuring the SET STORAGE directive is \ 
propagated to a table's indexes.
Fix a potential race condition when using DROP OWNED BY while another session is \ 
deleting the same objects.
Allow for a partition to be detached when it has inherited ROW triggers.
Several fixes for REINDEX CONCURRENTLY, particularly with issues when a REINDEX \ 
CONCURRENTLY operation fails.
Fix crash when COLLATE is applied to an uncollatable type in a partition bound \ 
expression.
Fix performance regression in floating point overflow/underflow detection.
Several fixes for full text search, particularly with phrase searching.
Fix query-lifespan memory leak for a set-returning function used in a query's \ 
FROM clause.
Several reporting fixes for the output of VACUUM VERBOSE.
Allow input of type circle to accept the format (x,y),r, which is specified in \ 
the documentation.
Allow for the get_bit() and set_bit() functions to not fail on bytea strings \ 
longer than 256MB.
Avoid premature recycling of WAL segments during crash recovery, which could \ 
lead to WAL segments being recycled before being archived.
Avoid attempting to fetch nonexistent WAL files from archive storage during \ 
recovery by skipping irrelevant timelines.
Several fixes for logical replication and replication slots.
Fix several race conditions in synchronous standby management, including one \ 
that occurred when changing the synchronous_standby_names setting.
Several fixes for GSSAPI support, include a fix for a memory leak that occurred \ 
when using GSSAPI encryption.
Ensure that members of the pg_read_all_stats role can read all statistics views.
Fix performance regression in information_schema.triggers view.
Fix memory leak in libpq when using sslmode=verify-full.
Fix crash in psql when attempting to re-establish a failed connection.
Allow tab-completion of the filename argument to \gx command in psql.
Add pg_dump support for ALTER ... DEPENDS ON EXTENSION.
Several other fixes for pg_dump, which include dumping comments on RLS policies \ 
and postponing restore of event triggers until the end.
Ensure pg_basebackup generates valid tar files.
pg_checksums skips tablespace subdirectories that belong to a different \ 
PostgreSQL major version
Several Windows compatibility fixes
This update also contains tzdata release 2020a for DST law changes in Morocco \ 
and the Canadian Yukon, plus historical corrections for Shanghai. The \ 
America/Godthab zone has been renamed to America/Nuuk to reflect current English \ 
usage ; however, the old name remains available as a compatibility link. This \ 
also updates initdb's list of known Windows time zone names to include recent \ 
additions.

PostgreSQL 12.2, 11.7, 10.12, 9.6.17, 9.5.21, and 9.4.26

PostgreSQL 9.4 Now EOL

This is the last release for PostgreSQL 9.4, which will no longer receive \ 
security updates and bug fixes. PostgreSQL 9.4 introduced new features such as \ 
JSONB support, the ALTER SYSTEM command, the ability to stream logical changes \ 
to an output plugin, and more.

While we are very proud of this release, these features are also found in newer \ 
versions of PostgreSQL. Many of these features have also received improvements, \ 
and, per our versioning policy, it is time to retire PostgreSQL 9.4.

To receive continued support, we suggest that you make plans to upgrade to a \ 
newer, supported version of PostgreSQL. Please see the PostgreSQL versioning \ 
policy for more information.

Security Issues

CVE-2020-1720: ALTER ... DEPENDS ON EXTENSION is missing authorization checks.
Versions Affected: 9.6 - 12

The ALTER ... DEPENDS ON EXTENSION sub-commands do not perform authorization \ 
checks, which can allow an unprivileged user to drop any function, procedure, \ 
materialized view, index, or trigger under certain conditions. This attack is \ 
possible if an administrator has installed an extension and an unprivileged user \ 
can CREATE, or an extension owner either executes DROP EXTENSION predictably or \ 
can be convinced to execute DROP EXTENSION.

Bug Fixes and Improvements

This update also fixes over 75 bugs that were reported in the last several \ 
months. Some of these issues affect only version 12, but may also affect all \ 
supported versions.

Some of these fixes include:

Fix for partitioned tables with foreign-key references where TRUNCATE ... \ 
CASCADE would not remove all data. If you have previously used TRUNCATE ... \ 
CASCADE on a partitioned table with foreign-key references please see the \ 
"Updating" section for verification and cleanup steps.
Fix failure to add foreign key constraints to table with sub-partitions (aka a \ 
multi-level partitioned table). If you have previously used this functionality, \ 
you can fix it by either detaching and re-attaching the affected partition, or \ 
by dropping and re-adding the foreign key constraint to the parent table. You \ 
can find more information on how to perform these steps in the ALTER TABLE \ 
documentation.
Fix performance issue for partitioned tables introduced by the fix for \ 
CVE-2017-7484 that now allows the planner to use statistics on a child table for \ 
a column that the user is granted access to on the parent table when the query \ 
contains a leaky operator.
Several other fixes and changes for partitioned tables, including disallowing \ 
partition key expressions that return pseudo-types, such as RECORD.
Fix for logical replication subscribers for executing per-column UPDATE triggers.
Fix for several crashes and failures for logical replication subscribers and \ 
publishers.
Improve efficiency of logical replication with REPLICA IDENTITY FULL.
Ensure that calling pg_replication_slot_advance() on a physical replication slot \ 
will persist changes across restarts.
Several fixes for the walsender processes.
Improve performance of hash joins with very large inner relations.
Fix placement of "Subplans Removed" field in EXPLAIN output by placing \ 
it with its parent Append or MergeAppend plan.
Several fixes for parallel query plans.
Several fixes for query planner errors, including one that affected joins to \ 
single-row subqueries.
Several fixes for MCV extend statistics, including one for incorrect estimation \ 
for OR clauses.
Improve efficiency of parallel hash join on CPUs with many cores.
Ignore the CONCURRENTLY option when performing an index creation, drop, or \ 
reindex on a temporary table.
Fall back to non-parallel index builds when a parallelized CREATE INDEX has no \ 
free dynamic shared memory slots.
Several fixes for GiST & GIN indexes.
Fix possible crash in BRIN index operations with box, range and inet data types.
Fix support for BRIN hypothetical indexes.
Fix failure in ALTER TABLE when a column referenced in a GENERATED expression is \ 
added or changed in type earlier in the same ALTER TABLE statement.
Fix handling of multiple AFTER ROW triggers on a foreign table.
Fix off-by-one result for EXTRACT(ISOYEAR FROM timestamp) for BC dates.
Prevent unwanted lowercasing and truncation of RADIUS authentication parameters \ 
in the pg_hba.conf file.
Several fixes for GSSAPI support, including having libpq accept all GSS-related \ 
connection parameters even if the GSSAPI code is not compiled in.
Several fixes for pg_dump and pg_restore when run in parallel mode.
Fix crash with postgres_fdw when trying to execute a remote query on the remote \ 
server such as UPDATE remote_tab SET (x,y) = (SELECT ...).
Disallow NULL category values in the crosstab() function of contrib/tablefunc to \ 
prevent crashes.
Several fixes for Windows, including a race condition that could cause timing \ 
oddities with NOTIFY.
Several ecpg fixes.

PostgreSQL 9.4 EOL Approaching

PostgreSQL 9.4 will stop receiving fixes on February 13, 2020, which is the next \ 
planned cumulative update release. Please see our versioning policy for more \ 
information.

Bug Fixes and Improvements

This update also fixes over 50 bugs that were reported in the last several \ 
months. Some of these issues affect only version 12, but may also affect all \ 
supported versions.

Some of these fixes include:

Fix crash that occurs when ALTER TABLE adds a column without a default value \ 
along with other changes that require a table rewrite
Several fixes for REINDEX CONCURRENTLY.
Fix for VACUUM that would cause it to fail under a specific case involving a \ 
still-running transaction.
Fix for a memory leak that could occur when VACUUM runs on a GiST index.
Fix for an error that occurred when running CLUSTER on an expression index.
Fix failure for SET CONSTRAINTS ... DEFERRED on partitioned tables.
Several fixes for the creation and dropping of indexes on partitioned tables.
Fix for partition-wise joins that could lead to planner failures.
Ensure that offset expressions in WINDOW clauses are processed when a query's \ 
expressions are manipulated.
Fix misbehavior of bitshiftright() where it failed to zero out padding space in \ 
the last byte if the bit string length is not a multiple of 8. For how to \ 
correct your data, please see the "Updating" section.
Ensure an empty string that is evaluated by the position() functions returns 1, \ 
as per the SQL standard.
Fix for a parallel query failure when it is unable to request a background worker.
Fix crash triggered by a case involving a BEFORE UPDATE trigger.
Display the correct error when a query tries to access a TOAST table.
Allow encoding conversion to succeed on strings with output up to 1GB. \ 
Previously there was hard limit of 0.25GB on the input string.
Ensure that temporary WAL and history files are removed at the end of archive \ 
recovery.
Avoid failure in archive recovery if recovery_min_apply_delay is enabled.
Ignore restore_command, recovery_end_command, and recovery_min_apply_delay \ 
settings during crash recovery.
Several fixes for logical replication, including a failure when the publisher \ 
and subscriber had different REPLICA IDENTITY columns set.
Correctly timestamp replication messages for logical decoding, which in the \ 
broken case would lead to pg_stat_subscription.last_msg_send_time set to NULL.
Several fixes for libpq, including one that improves PostgreSQL 12 compatibility.
Several pg_upgrade fixes.
Fix how a parallel restore handles foreign key constraints on partitioned tables \ 
to ensure they are not created too soon.
pg_dump now outputs similarly named triggers and RLS policies in order based on \ 
table name, instead of OID.
Fix pg_rewind to not update the contents of pg_control when using the --dry-run \ 
option.

This update also contains tzdata release 2019c for DST law changes in Fiji and \ 
Norfolk Island. Historical corrections for Alberta, Austria, Belgium, British \ 
Columbia, Cambodia, Hong Kong, Indiana (Perry County), Kaliningrad, Kentucky, \ 
Michigan, Norfolk Island, South Korea, and Turkey.

Security Issues

Four security vulnerabilities have been closed by this release:

CVE-2019-10208: TYPE in pg_temp executes arbitrary SQL during SECURITY DEFINER \ 
execution

Versions Affected: 9.4 - 11

Given a suitable SECURITY DEFINER function, an attacker can execute arbitrary \ 
SQL under the identity of the function owner. An attack requires EXECUTE \ 
permission on the function, which must itself contain a function call having \ 
inexact argument type match. For example, length('foo'::varchar) and \ 
length('foo') are inexact, while length('foo'::text) is exact. As part of \ 
exploiting this vulnerability, the attacker uses CREATE DOMAIN to create a type \ 
in a pg_temp schema. The attack pattern and fix are similar to that for \ 
CVE-2007-2138.

Writing SECURITY DEFINER functions continues to require
following the considerations noted in the documentation:

The PostgreSQL project thanks Tom Lane for reporting this problem.

CVE-2019-10209: Memory disclosure in cross-type comparison for hashed subplan

Versions Affected: 11

In a database containing hypothetical, user-defined hash equality operators, an \ 
attacker could read arbitrary bytes of server memory. For an attack to become \ 
possible, a superuser would need to create unusual operators. It is possible for \ 
operators not purpose-crafted for attack to have the properties that enable an \ 
attack, but we are not aware of specific examples.

The PostgreSQL project thanks Andreas Seltenreich for reporting this problem.

CVE-2019-10210: EnterpriseDB Windows installer writes PostgreSQL superuser \ 
password to unprotected temporary file

Versions Affected: The EnterpriseDB Windows installer for versions 9.4 - 11

The EnterpriseDB Windows installer writes a password to a temporary file in its \ 
installation directory, creates initial databases, and deletes the file. During \ 
those seconds while the file exists, a local attacker can read the PostgreSQL \ 
superuser password from the file.

The PostgreSQL project thanks Noah Misch for reporting this problem.

CVE-2019-10211: EnterpriseDB Windows installer bundled OpenSSL executes code \ 
from unprotected directory

Versions Affected: The EnterpriseDB Windows installer for versions 9.4 - 11

When the database server or libpq client library initializes SSL, libeay32.dll \ 
attempts to read configuration from a hard-coded directory. Typically, the \ 
directory does not exist, but any local user could create it and inject \ 
configuration. This configuration can direct OpenSSL to load and execute \ 
arbitrary code as the user running a PostgreSQL server or client. Most \ 
PostgreSQL client tools and libraries use libpq, and one can encounter this \ 
vulnerability by using any of them. This vulnerability is much like \ 
CVE-2019-5443, but it originated independently. One can work around the \ 
vulnerability by setting environment variable OPENSSL_CONF to \ 
"NUL:/openssl.cnf" or any other name that cannot exist as a file.

The PostgreSQL project thanks Daniel Gustafsson of the curl security team for \ 
reporting this problem.

Bug Fixes and Improvements

This update also fixes over 40 bugs that were reported in the last several \ 
months. Some of these issues affect only version 11, but many affect all \ 
supported versions.

Some of these fixes include:

Fix for ALTER TABLE ... ALTER COLUMN TYPE when multiple column types are \ 
modified in a single-command. This issue was introduced in the previous \ 
cumulative update (11.4, 10.9, 9.6.14, 9.5.18, 9.4.23, and 12 beta 2).
Ensure that partition key columns will not be dropped as the result of an \ 
"indirect drop," such as from a cascade from dropping the key column's \ 
data type (e.g. a custom data type). This fix is applied only to newly created \ 
partitioned tables: if you believe you have an affected partition table (e.g. \ 
one where the partition key uses a custom data type), you will need to either \ 
create a new table and move your data into it OR use pg_upgrade.
Prevent dropping a partitioned table's trigger if there are pending trigger \ 
events in child partitions. This particularly affects foreign key constraints, \ 
which are implemented by triggers.
Several additional fixes for partitioning, including a fix for partition pruning \ 
that could lead to inefficient queries.
Fix for parallel hash joins that could lead to duplicate result rows in EXISTS \ 
queries.
Several fixes for the query planner.
Several fixes for issues that would lead to query deadlocks.
Fix for multi-column foreign keys when rebuilding a foreign key constraint.
Prevent extended statistics from being built for inherited tables.
Fix for the canonicalization of date ranges that include -infinity/infinity \ 
endpoints to ensure the behavior matches the documentation.
Fix loss of fractional digits when converting very large money values to numeric.
Fix for PL/pgSQL functions that return composite types.
Make libpq ignore the \r carriage return in connection service files, which was \ 
causing connection failures in some edge cases.
Several fixes for psql, which includes avoiding incorrect tab completion options \ 
after SET variable =.
Improve reliability of contrib/amcheck's index verification.
Set initdb to prefer the timezone behavior defined by the C library instead of \ 
what is defined by localtime or posixrules. This ensures PostgreSQL uses the \ 
"real" timezone name instead of an artificial name.
Fix pg_dump to ensure that custom operator classes are dumped in the correct \ 
order to prevent creating an unrestorable dump.
Fix possible lockup in pgbench when using -R option.
Fix spinlock assembly code for MIPS CPUs so that it works on MIPS r6.
This update also contains tzdata release 2019b for DST law changes in Brazil, \ 
plus historical corrections for Hong Kong, Italy, and Palestine. This update \ 
also adds support for zic's new -b slim option to reduce the size of the \ 
installed zone files, though it is not currently being used by PostgreSQL.
