Package        : postgresql-9.4
CVE ID         : CVE-2016-5423 CVE-2016-5424

Several vulnerabilities have been found in PostgreSQL-9.4, a SQL
database system.

CVE-2016-5423

    Karthikeyan Jambu Rajaraman discovered that nested CASE-WHEN
    expressions are not properly evaluated, potentially leading to a
    crash or allowing to disclose portions of server memory.

CVE-2016-5424

    Nathan Bossart discovered that special characters in database and
    role names are not properly handled, potentially leading to the
    execution of commands with superuser privileges, when a superuser
    executes pg_dumpall or other routine maintenance operations.

For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
version 9.4.9-0+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your postgresql-9.4 packages.
