    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in PostgreSQL database server.
    
    CVE-2013-1899
    
        Mitsumasa Kondo and Kyotaro Horiguchi of NTT Open Source Software Center
        discovered that it was possible for a connection request containing a
        database name that begins with "-" to be crafted that can damage or destroy
        files within a server's data directory. Anyone with access to the port the
        PostgreSQL server listens on can initiate this request.
    
    CVE-2013-1900
    
        Random numbers generated by contrib/pgcrypto functions may be easy for
        another database user to guess.
    
    CVE-2013-1901
    
        An unprivileged user could run commands that could interfere with
        in-progress backups
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), postgresql-9.1 is not available.
    DSA-2657-1 has been released for CVE-2013-1900 affecting posgresql-8.4.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 9.1.9-0wheezy1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 9.1.9-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your postgresql-9.1 packages.
