Description

Benkocs Norbert Attila discovered that PostgreSQL incorrectly handled authentication timeouts. A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause the unauthenticated session to crash, possibly leading to a security issue. (CVE-2015-3165)

Noah Misch discovered that PostgreSQL incorrectly handled certain standard library function return values, possibly leading to security issues. (CVE-2015-3166)

Noah Misch discovered that the pgcrypto function could return different error messages when decrypting using an incorrect key, possibly leading to a security issue. (CVE-2015-3167).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
