    Several local vulnerabilities have been discovered in PostgreSQL, an 
    object-relational SQL database. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
    project identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2012-0866
    
       It was discovered that the permissions of a function called by a 
       trigger are not checked. This could result in privilege escalation.
    
    CVE-2012-0867
    
       It was discovered that only the first 32 characters of a host name 
       are checked when validating host names through SSL certificates. 
       This could result in spoofing the connection in limited 
       circumstances.
    
    CVE-2012-0868
    
       It was discovered that pg_dump did not sanitise object names.
       This could result in arbitrary SQL command execution if a
       malformed dump file is opened.   
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 8.4.11-0squeeze1. 
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 8.4.11-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your postgresql-8.4 packages.
