    Synopsis:          Moderate: postgresql security update
    Issue date:        2007-05-08
    CVE Names:         CVE-2007-2138
    
    Updated postgresql packages that fix several security issues are now
    available.
    
    A flaw was found in the way PostgreSQL allows authenticated users to
    execute security-definer functions.  It was possible for an unprivileged
    user to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the security-definer
    function. (CVE-2007-2138)
