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

extension. An authenticated attacker could possibly use this flaw to
disclose a limited amount of the server memory. (CVE-2015-5288)

A stack overflow flaw was discovered in the way the PostgreSQL core server
processed certain JSON or JSONB input. An authenticated attacker could
possibly use this flaw to crash the server backend by sending specially
crafted JSON or JSONB input. (CVE-2015-5289)

Please note that SSL renegotiation is now disabled by default. For more
information, please refer to PostgreSQL's 2015-10-08 Security Update
