Description Arvid Requate univentionstaff 2015-05-26 20:44:06 CEST
Fix available in upstream Debian package version 8.4.22lts2-0+deb6u1:

* Denial of service due to double-free after authentication timeout (CVE-2015-3165)
* Information disclosure due to missing checks of return codes from the standard library (CVE-2015-3166)
* Inconsistent error messages from contrib/pgcrypto (CVE-2015-3167)
Comment 1 Arvid Requate univentionstaff 2015-07-13 13:18:24 CEST
Fixed in 8.4.22lts4-0+deb6u1:

* Fix rare failure to invalidate relation cache init file (Tom Lane)

  With just the wrong timing of concurrent activity, a VACUUM  FULL
  on a system catalog might fail to update the init file that's used to
  avoid cache-loading work for new sessions.  This would result in
  later sessions being unable to access that catalog at all.
  This is a very ancient bug, but it's so hard to trigger that no
  reproducible case had been seen until recently. (No CVE)
