    Two vulnerabilities have been discovered in libdbd-pg-perl, the DBI
    driver module for PostgreSQL database access (DBD::Pg).
    
    CVE-2009-0663
    
      A heap-based buffer overflow may allow attackers to execute arbitrary
      code through applications which read rows from the database using the
      pg_getline and getline functions.  (More common retrieval methods,
      such as selectall_arrayref and fetchrow_array, are not affected.)
    
    CVE-2009-1341
    
      A memory leak in the routine which unquotes BYTEA values returned from
      the database allows attackers to cause a denial of service.
    
    For the old stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed
    in version 1.49-2+etch1.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny) and the unstable distribution (sid),
    these problems have been fixed in version 2.1.3-1 before the release of
    lenny.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libdbd-pg-perl package.
    
    Upgrade instructions
