PostgreSQL is an advanced object-relational database management system (DBMS).
Note: This patch drops the script privileges from root to the postgres user. Therefore, we dropped the --new-systemd-unit option for security reasons. Please use the root-only script postgresql-new-systemd-unit.
Red Hat would like to thank the PostgreSQL project for reporting CVE-2017-12172. The CVE-2017-15097 issue was discovered by Pedro Barbosa (Red Hat) and the PostgreSQL project. Upstream acknowledges Antoine Scemama (Brainloop) as the original reporter of these issues.
