    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.
