Ubuntu: PostgreSQL regression Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Ubuntu USN-417-2 fixed a severe regression in the PostgreSQL server that was introduced in USN-417-1 and caused some valid queries to be aborted with a type error. This update fixes a similar (but much less prominent) error. At the same time, PostgreSQL is updated to version 8.1.8, which fixes a range of important bugs.
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-417-3          February 09, 2007
postgresql-8.1 regression

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Ubuntu 6.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
  postgresql-8.1                           8.1.8-0ubuntu6.06.1
  postgresql-client-8.1                    8.1.8-0ubuntu6.06.1

Ubuntu 6.10:
  postgresql-8.1                           8.1.8-0ubuntu6.10
  postgresql-client-8.1                    8.1.8-0ubuntu6.10

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.

Details follow:

USN-417-2 fixed a severe regression in the PostgreSQL server that was
introduced in USN-417-1 and caused some valid queries to be aborted
with a type error. This update fixes a similar (but much less
prominent) error.

At the same time, PostgreSQL is updated to version 8.1.8, which fixes
a range of important bugs.
