Description:Summary:
Various vulnerabilities were discovered in PostgreSQL:

CVE-2014-0060 Shore up GRANT ... WITH ADMIN OPTION restrictions (Noah Misch)

Granting a role without ADMIN OPTION is supposed to prevent the grantee
from adding or removing members from the granted role, but this
restriction was easily bypassed by doing SET ROLE first. The security
impact is mostly that a role member can revoke the access of others,
contrary to the wishes of his grantor. Unapproved role member additions
are a lesser concern, since an uncooperative role member could provide
most of his rights to others anyway by creating views or SECURITY
DEFINER functions.

Description truncated. Please see the references for more information.

Affected Software/OS:
postgresql-8.4 on Debian Linux

Solution:
For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
version 8.4.20-0squeeze1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 9.3.3-1 of the postgresql-9.3 package.

We recommend that you upgrade your postgresql-8.4 packages.
