Vulnerability Insight:
* CVE-2019-10208: `TYPE` in `pg_temp` executes arbitrary SQL during

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.

Affected Software/OS:
'postgresql-9.4' package(s) on Debian Linux.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', this problem has been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your postgresql-9.4 packages.
