* CVE-2019-10208: `TYPE` in `pg_temp` executes arbitrary SQL during
`SECURITY DEFINER` execution
Versions Affected: 9.4 - 11
Given a suitable `SECURITY DEFINER` function, an attacker can execute
arbitrary SQL under the identity of the function owner. An attack
requires `EXECUTE` permission on the function, which must itself contain
a function call having inexact argument type match. For example,
`length('foo'::varchar)` and `length('foo')` are inexact, while
`length('foo'::text)` is exact. As part of exploiting this
vulnerability, the attacker uses `CREATE DOMAIN` to create a type in a
`pg_temp` schema. The attack pattern and fix are similar to that for
Writing `SECURITY DEFINER` functions continues to require following the
considerations noted in the documentation:
The PostgreSQL project thanks Tom Lane for reporting this problem.
