    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    - Ubuntu 17.10
    - Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
    PostgreSQL could be made to execute arbitrary code.

    An attacker could possibly use this issue to execute arbitrary code.
    Update instructions:
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    Ubuntu 17.10:
      postgresql-9.6                  9.6.8-0ubuntu0.17.10
    Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
      postgresql-9.5                  9.5.12-0ubuntu0.16.04
