Vulnerability Insight:
PostgreSQL is an advanced object-relational database management system
(DBMS).

An information leak flaw was found in the way the PostgreSQL database
server handled certain error messages. An authenticated database user could
possibly obtain the results of a query they did not have privileges to
execute by observing the constraint violation error messages produced when
the query was executed. (CVE-2014-8161)

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way PostgreSQL handled certain
numeric formatting. An authenticated database user could use a specially
crafted timestamp formatting template to cause PostgreSQL to crash or,
under certain conditions, execute arbitrary code with the permissions of
the user running PostgreSQL. (CVE-2015-0241)

A stack-buffer overflow flaw was found in PostgreSQL's pgcrypto module.
An authenticated database user could use this flaw to cause PostgreSQL to
crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the
user running PostgreSQL. (CVE-2015-0243)

A flaw was found in the way PostgreSQL handled certain errors that were
generated during protocol synchronization. An authenticated database user
could use this flaw to inject queries into an existing connection.
(CVE-2015-0244)
