- Date Reported:

- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- No other external database security references currently available.
- More information:
Several vulnerabilities have been found in PostgreSQL, an SQL database system.
Karthikeyan Jambu Rajaraman discovered that nested CASE-WHEN expressions are not properly evaluated, potentially leading to a crash or allowing to disclose portions of server memory.
Nathan Bossart discovered that special characters in database and role names are not properly handled, potentially leading to the execution of commands with superuser privileges, when a superuser executes pg_dumpall or other routine maintenance operations.
For Debian 7
Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 9.1.23-0+deb7u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your postgresql-9.1 packages.
