    Several vulnerabilities have been found in the PostgreSQL database system.
        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.
        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
    We recommend that you upgrade your postgresql-9.6 packages.
