Description

Package : postgresql-common Version : 134wheezy6

A security vulnerability has been found in postgresql-common, Debian's PostgreSQL database cluster management tools.

CVE-2017-8806

It was discovered that the pg_ctlcluster, pg_createcluster and
pg_upgradecluster commands handled symbolic links insecurely which
could result in local denial of service by overwriting arbitrary
files.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version 134wheezy6.

We recommend that you upgrade your postgresql-common packages.
