Several security issues were fixed in PostgreSQL.

Releases

Packages

Details

It was discovered that PostgreSQL incorrectly handled partition routing. A
remote user could possibly use this issue to read arbitrary bytes of server
memory. This issue only affected Ubuntu 19.04. (CVE-2019-10129)

Dean Rasheed discovered that PostgreSQL incorrectly handled selectivity
estimators. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to bypass row
security policies. (CVE-2019-10130)

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 19.04
Ubuntu 18.10
Ubuntu 18.04
Ubuntu 16.04

This update uses a new upstream release, which includes additional bug
fixes. After a standard system update you need to restart PostgreSQL to
make all the necessary changes.
