Several vulnerabilities have been found in the PostgreSQL database system.

CVE-2020-25694

    Peter Eisentraut found that database reconnections may drop options
    from the original connection, such as encryption, which could lead
    to information disclosure or a man-in-the-middle attack.

    Etienne Stalmans reported that a user with permissions to create
    non-temporary objects in an schema can execute arbitrary SQL
    functions as a superuser.

CVE-2020-25696

    Nick Cleaton found that the \gset command modified variables that
    control the psql behaviour, which could result in a compromised or
    malicious server executing arbitrary code in the user session.

For Debian 9 stretch, these problems have been fixed in version
