Description

Alexander Lakhin discovered that PostgreSQL incorrectly handled authentication. An authenticated attacker or a rogue server could use this issue to cause PostgreSQL to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code. The default compiler options for affected releases should reduce the vulnerability to a denial of service.

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.
