    Vulnerability  : guessable random numbers
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2013-1900
    
    A vulnerability was discovered in PostgreSQL database server. Random numbers
    generated by contrib/pgcrypto functions may be easy for another database user
    to guess.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 8.4.17-0squeeze1.
    
    For the testing (wheezy) and unstable distribution (sid), postgresql-8.4
    packages have been removed; in those, this problem has been fixed in
    postgresql-9.1 9.1.9-0wheezy1 (wheezy), and 9.1.9-1 (sid) respectively.
    
    NOTE: postgresql-8.4 in Squeeze is not affected by CVE-2013-1899 (database
    files corruption) and CVE-2013-1901 (unprivileged user can interfere with
    in-progress backups).
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your postgresql-8.4 packages.
