    Several vulnerabilities have been found in PostgreSQL-9.1, a SQL database 
    system.
    
    CVE-2014-8161: Information leak
    A user with limited clearance on a table might have access to information
    in columns without SELECT rights on through server error messages.
    
    CVE-2015-0241: Out of boundaries read/write
    The function to_char() might read/write past the end of a buffer. This
    might crash the server when a formatting template is processed.
    
    CVE-2015-0243: Buffer overruns in contrib/pgcrypto
    The pgcrypto module is vulnerable to stack buffer overrun that might
    crash the server.
    
    CVE-2015-0244: SQL command injection
    Emil Lenngren reported that an attacker can inject SQL commands when the 
    synchronization between client and server is lost.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 9.1.15-0+deb7u1.
    
    For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been
    fixed in version 9.1.14-0+deb8u1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 9.1.15-0+deb8u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your postgresql-9.1 packages.
