A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

– Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
– Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
– Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in PostgreSQL.

Software Description:
– postgresql-10: object-relational SQL database
– postgresql-9.5: Object-relational SQL database
– postgresql-9.3: Object-relational SQL database

Details:

Andrew Krasichkov discovered that the PostgreSQL client library incorrect=
ly
reset its internal state between connections. A remote attacker could
possibly use this issue to bypass certain client-side connection security=

features. This issue only affected Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.=

(CVE-2018-10915)

It was discovered that PostgreSQL incorrectly checked authorization on
certain statements. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to
read arbitrary server memory or alter certain data. (CVE-2018-10925)

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
postgresql-10 10.5-0ubuntu0.18.04

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
postgresql-9.5 9.5.14-0ubuntu0.16.04

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
postgresql-9.3 9.3.24-0ubuntu0.14.04

This update uses a new upstream release, which includes additional bug
fixes. After a standard system update you need to restart PostgreSQL to
make all the necessary changes.
