    Package        : postgresql-9.1
    CVE ID         : CVE-2015-3165 CVE-2015-3166 CVE-2015-3167
    
    Several vulnerabilities have been found in PostgreSQL-9.1, a SQL
    database system.
    
    CVE-2015-3165 (Remote crash)
    
        SSL clients disconnecting just before the authentication timeout
        expires can cause the server to crash.
    
    CVE-2015-3166 (Information exposure)
    
        The replacement implementation of snprintf() failed to check for
        errors reported by the underlying system library calls; the main
        case that might be missed is out-of-memory situations. In the worst
        case this might lead to information exposure.
    
    CVE-2015-3167 (Possible side-channel key exposure)
    
        In contrib/pgcrypto, some cases of decryption with an incorrect key
        could report other error message texts. Fix by using a
        one-size-fits-all message.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed
    in version 9.1.16-0+deb7u1.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 9.1.16-0+deb8u1. (Jessie contains a reduced postgresql-9.1
    package; only CVE-2015-3166 is fixed in the produced binary package
    postgresql-plperl-9.1. We recommend to upgrade to postgresql-9.4 to get
    the full set of fixes. See the Jessie release notes for details.)
    
    The testing distribution (stretch) and the unstable distribution (sid)
    do not contain the postgresql-9.1 package.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your postgresql-9.1 packages.
