Details

Heikki Linnakangas discovered that PostgreSQL incorrectly leaked values of
denied columns when handling certain errors. A remote attacker could
possibly use this issue to obtain sensitive information.

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 20.10
Ubuntu 20.04

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.
