Problem description

Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in
postgresql:

PostgreSQL 9.2.x before 9.2.3, 9.1.x before 9.1.8, 9.0.x before 9.0.12,
8.4.x before 8.4.16, and 8.3.x before 8.3.23 does not properly declare
the enum_recv function in backend/utils/adt/enum.c, which causes it to
be invoked with incorrect arguments and allows remote authenticated
users to cause a denial of service (server crash) or read sensitive
process memory via a crafted SQL command, which triggers an array
index error and an out-of-bounds read (CVE-2013-0255).

Argument injection vulnerability in PostgreSQL 9.2.x before 9.2.4,
9.1.x before 9.1.9, and 9.0.x before 9.0.13 allows remote attackers
to cause a denial of service (file corruption), and allows remote
authenticated users to modify configuration settings and execute
arbitrary code, via a connection request using a database name that
begins with a - (hyphen) (CVE-2013-1899).

PostgreSQL 9.2.x before 9.2.4, 9.1.x before 9.1.9, 9.0.x before 9.0.13,
and 8.4.x before 8.4.17, when using OpenSSL, generates insufficiently
random numbers, which might allow remote authenticated users to have
an unspecified impact via vectors related to the contrib/pgcrypto
functions. (CVE-2013-1900).

PostgreSQL 9.2.x before 9.2.4 and 9.1.x before 9.1.9 does not properly
check REPLICATION privileges, which allows remote authenticated
users to bypass intended backup restrictions by calling the (1)
pg_start_backup or (2) pg_stop_backup functions (CVE-2013-1901).

This advisory provides the latest versions of PostgreSQL that is not
vulnerable to these issues.
