Package        : postgresql-9.1
Debian Bug     : 786874

The update for postgresql-9.1 in DSA-3269-1 introduced a regression
which can causes PostgreSQL to refuse to restart after an unexpected
shutdown or when restoring from a binary backup. Updated packages are
now available to address this regression. Please refer to the upstream
Bug FAQ for additional information:

 https://wiki.postgresql.org/wiki/May_2015_Fsync_Permissions_Bug

For reference, the original advisory text follows.

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), this problem has been fixed
in version 9.1.16-0+deb7u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your postgresql-9.1 packages.
