Description

It was discovered that PostgreSQL incorrectly handled partition routing. A remote user could possibly use this issue to read arbitrary bytes of server memory. This issue only affected Ubuntu 19.04. (CVE-2019-10129)

Dean Rasheed discovered that PostgreSQL incorrectly handled selectivity estimators. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to bypass row security policies. (CVE-2019-10130).

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.
