    An authenticated user could create a stack-based buffer overflow by
    changing their own password to a purpose-crafted value. In addition to
    the ability to crash the PostgreSQL server, this could be further
    exploited to execute arbitrary code as the PostgreSQL operating system
    account.
    
    Additionally, a rogue server could send a specifically crafted message
    during the SCRAM authentication process and cause a libpq-enabled client
    to either crash or execute arbitrary code as the client's operating
    system account. (CVE-2019-10164)
    
    More than 25 other bugs have been fixed too, see referenced release
    notes.
