Description

The (1) brin_page_type and (2) brin_metapage_info functions in the pageinspect extension in PostgreSQL before 9.5.x before 9.5.2 allows attackers to bypass intended access restrictions and consequently obtain sensitive server memory information or cause a denial of service (server crash) via a crafted bytea value in a BRIN index page.

Solution(s)

  • postgres-upgrade-9_5_2
