    Rich Mirch discovered that the pg_ctlcluster script didn't drop
    privileges when creating socket/statistics temporary directories, which
    could result in local privilege escalation.
    
    For the oldoldstable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed
    in version 165+deb8u4.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your postgresql-common packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of postgresql-common please refer to
    its security tracker page at:
