Description

PostgreSQL before 9.1.20, 9.2.x before 9.2.15, 9.3.x before 9.3.11, 9.4.x before 9.4.6, and 9.5.x before 9.5.1 does not properly restrict access to unspecified custom configuration settings (GUCS) for PL/Java, which allows attackers to gain privileges via unspecified vectors.

  • postgres-upgrade-9_3_11
  • postgres-upgrade-9_4_6
  • postgres-upgrade-9_5_1
