The PostgreSQL Global Development Group has released an update to all
supported versions of our database system, including 12.2, 11.7, 10.12,
9.6.17, 9.5.21, and 9.4.26. This release fixes one security issue found
in the PostgreSQL server and over 75 bugs reported over the last three
months.

Users should plan to update as soon as possible.

PostgreSQL 9.4 Now EOL

This is the last release for PostgreSQL 9.4, which will no longer
receive security updates and bug fixes. PostgreSQL 9.4 introduced new
features such as JSONB support, the `ALTER SYSTEM` command, the ability
to stream logical changes to an output plugin, and more:

 https://www.postgresql.org/about/news/1557/
 https://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.4/release-9-4.html

While we are very proud of this release, these features are also found
in newer versions of PostgreSQL. Many of these features have also
received improvements, and, per our versioning policy, it is time to
retire PostgreSQL 9.4.

To receive continued support, we suggest that you make plans to upgrade
to a newer, supported version of PostgreSQL. Please see the PostgreSQL
versioning policy for more information.

Security Issues

* CVE-2020-1720: `ALTER ... DEPENDS ON EXTENSION` is missing
authorization checks.

Versions Affected: 9.6 - 12

The `ALTER ... DEPENDS ON EXTENSION` sub-commands do not perform
authorization checks, which can allow an unprivileged user to  drop any
function, procedure, materialized view, index, or trigger under certain
conditions. This attack is possible if an administrator has installed an
extension and an unprivileged user can `CREATE`, or an extension owner
either executes `DROP EXTENSION` predictably or can be convinced to
execute `DROP EXTENSION`.

Upgrade PostgreSQL

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group has released an update to all
supported versions of our database system, including 12.1, 11.6, 10.11,
9.6.16, 9.5.20, and 9.4.25. This release fixes over 50 bugs reported
over the last three months.

PostgreSQL 9.4 will stop receiving fixes on February 13, 2020, which is
the next planned cumulative update release. We suggest that you make
plans to upgrade to a newer, supported version of PostgreSQL. Please see
our versioning policy for more information:

This update also fixes over 50 bugs that were reported in the last
several months. Some of these issues affect only version 12, but may
also affect all supported versions.

Specific change to the FreeBSD port:
Starting now, the default for TZDATA has changed to using the underlying OS'
time zone database instead of the one built in to PostgreSQL. This change is
made since PostgreSQL will not release a patch in the event where the time zone
database changes, whereas FreeBSD will.

iThe PostgreSQL Global Development Group has released an update to all
supported versions of our database system, including 11.5, 10.10,
9.6.15, 9.5.19, and 9.4.24, as well as the third beta of PostgreSQL 12.
This release fixes two security issues in the PostgreSQL server, two
security issues found in one of the PostgreSQL Windows installers, and
over 40 bugs reported since the previous release.

Users should install these updates as soon as possible.

A Note on the PostgreSQL 12 Beta
================================

In the spirit of the open source PostgreSQL community, we strongly
encourage you to test the new features of PostgreSQL 12 in your database
systems to help us eliminate any bugs or other issues that may exist.
While we do not advise you to run PostgreSQL 12 Beta 3 in your
production environments, we encourage you to find ways to run your
typical application workloads against this beta release.

Your testing and feedback will help the community ensure that the
PostgreSQL 12 release upholds our standards of providing a stable,
reliable release of the world's most advanced open source relational
database.

Security Issues
===============

Two security vulnerabilities have been closed by this release:

* 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
CVE-2007-2138.

Writing `SECURITY DEFINER` functions continues to require following the
considerations noted in the documentation:

https://www.postgresql.org/docs/devel/sql-createfunction.html#SQL-CREATEFUNCTION-SECURITY

The PostgreSQL project thanks Tom Lane for reporting this problem.

* CVE-2019-10209: Memory disclosure in cross-type comparison for hashed
subplan

Versions Affected: 11

In a database containing hypothetical, user-defined hash equality operators, an
attacker could read arbitrary bytes of server memory. For an attack to become
possible, a superuser would need to create unusual operators. It is possible for
operators not purpose-crafted for attack to have the properties that enable an
attack, but we are not aware of specific examples.

The PostgreSQL project thanks Andreas Seltenreich for reporting this problem.

Upgrade PostgreSQL to latest version

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group has released an update to all supported
versions of our database system, including 11.4, 10.9, 9.6.14, 9.5.18, and
9.4.23, as well as the second beta of PostgreSQL 12. This release fixes one
security issue and over 25 bugs since the previous cumulative update in May.

This release is made outside of the normal update release schedule as the
security vulnerability was determined to be critical enough to distribute the
fix as quickly as possible. Users who are running PostgreSQL 10, PostgreSQL 11,
or the PostgreSQL 12 beta should upgrade as soon as possible.

All other users should plan to apply this update at the next scheduled
downtime.

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group has released an update to all
supported versions of our database system, including 11.3, 10.8, 9.6.13,
9.5.17, and 9.4.22. This release fixes two security issues in the
PostgreSQL server, a security issue found in two of the PostgreSQL
Windows installers, and over 60 bugs reported over the last three months.

Security:	CVE-2019-10129: Memory disclosure in partition routing

Prior to this release, a user running PostgreSQL 11 can read arbitrary
bytes of server memory by executing a purpose-crafted INSERT statement
to a partitioned table.

Security:	CVE-2019-10130: Selectivity estimators bypass row security policies

PostgreSQL maintains statistics for tables by sampling data available in
columns; this data is consulted during the query planning process. Prior
to this release, a user able to execute SQL queries with permissions to
read a given column could craft a leaky operator that could read
whatever data had been sampled from that column.  If this happened to
include values from rows that the user is forbidden to see by a row
security policy, the user could effectively bypass the policy.  This is
fixed by only allowing a non-leakproof operator to use this data if
there are no relevant row security policies for the table.

This issue is present in PostgreSQL 9.5, 9.6, 10, and 11. The PostgreSQL
project thanks Dean Rasheed for reporting this problem.

Also fix a FreeBSD port problem with LLVM [1] and add promote command
to `service postgresql` [2]

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group has released an update to all
supported versions of our database system, including 11.2, 10.7, 9.6.12,
9.5.16, and 9.4.21. This release changes the behavior in how PostgreSQL
interfaces with `fsync()` and includes fixes for partitioning and over
70 other bugs that were reported over the past three months.

Users should plan to apply this update at the next scheduled downtime.

FreeBSD port adds OPTIONS knob to support LLVM JIT. [1]

Highlight: Change in behavior with fsync()
------------------------------------------

When available in an operating system and enabled in the configuration
file (which it is by default), PostgreSQL uses the kernel function
`fsync()` to help ensure that data is written to a disk. In some
operating systems that provide `fsync()`, when the kernel is unable to
write out the data, it returns a failure and flushes the data that was
supposed to be written from its data buffers.

This flushing operation has an unfortunate side-effect for PostgreSQL:
if PostgreSQL tries again to write the data to disk by again calling
`fsync()`, `fsync()` will report back that it succeeded, but the data
that PostgreSQL believed to be saved to the disk would not actually be
written. This presents a possible data corruption scenario.

This update modifies how PostgreSQL handles a `fsync()` failure:
PostgreSQL will no longer retry calling `fsync()` but instead will
panic. In this case, PostgreSQL can then replay the data from the
write-ahead log (WAL) to help ensure the data is written. While this may
appear to be a suboptimal solution, there are presently few alternatives
and, based on reports, the problem case occurs extremely rarely.

A new server parameter `data_sync_retry` has been added to manage this
behavior. If you are certain that your kernel does not discard dirty
data buffers in such scenarios, you can set `data_sync_retry` to `on` to
restore the old behavior.

minor update.

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group also announces that the third beta
release of PostgreSQL 11 is now available for download. This release contains
previews of all features that will be available in the final release of
PostgreSQL 11 (though some details of the release could change before then) as
well as bug fixes that were reported during the second beta.

This release also changes the default option for the server packages to *not*

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group has released an update to all supported
versions of the PostgreSQL database system, including 10.3, 9.6.8, 9.5.12,
9.4.17, and 9.3.22.

The purpose of this release is to address CVE-2018-1058, which describes how a
user can create like-named objects in different schemas that can change the
behavior of other users' queries and cause unexpected or malicious behavior,
also known as a "trojan-horse" attack. Most of this release centers around added
documentation that describes the issue and how to take steps to mitigate the
impact on PostgreSQL databases.

We strongly encourage all of our users to please visit
https://wiki.postgresql.org/wiki/A_Guide_to_CVE-2018-1058:_Protect_Your_Search_Path
for a detailed explanation of CVE-2018-1058 and how to protect your PostgreSQL
installations.

After evaluating the documentation for CVE-2018-1058, a database administrator
may need to take follow up steps on their PostgreSQL installations to ensure
they are protected from exploitation.

PostgreSQL 9.6.2, 9.5.6, 9.4.11, 9.3.16 and 9.2.20 released!

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group has released an update to all supported
versions of our database system, including 9.6.2, 9.5.6, 9.4.11, 9.3.16, and
9.2.20. This release includes fixes that prevent data corruption issues in

Build corruption with CREATE INDEX CONCURRENTLY

There existed a race condition if CREATE INDEX CONCURRENTLY was called on a
column that had not been indexed before, then rows that were updated by
transactions running at the same time as the CREATE INDEX CONCURRENTLY command
could have been indexed incorrectly.

If you suspect this may have happened, the most reliable solution is to rebuild
affected indexes after installing this update.

This issue is present in the 9.2, 9.3, 9.4, 9.5, and 9.6 series of PostgreSQL.

Update PostgreSQL ports to latest version.

Data Corruption Fix

For users of PostgreSQL versions 9.3 or 9.4, this release fixes a problem where
the database will fail to protect against "multixact wraparound", resulting in
data corruption or loss. Users with a high transaction rate (1 million or more
per hour) in a database with many foreign keys are especially vulnerable. We
strongly urge all users of 9.4 and 9.3 to update their installations in the
next few days.

Users of versions 9.2 and earlier are not affected by this issue.

Update PostgreSQL-9.x to latests versions.

This update fixes multiple security issues reported in PostgreSQL over the past
few months. All of these issues require prior authentication, and some require
additional conditions, and as such are not considered generally urgent.
However, users should examine the list of security holes patched below in case
they are particularly vulnerable.

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group announced that the first beta
release of PostgreSQL 9.4, the latest version of the world's leading
open source database, is available today.  This beta contains previews
of all of the features which will be available in version 9.4, and is
ready for testing by the worldwide PostgreSQL community.  Please
download, test, and report what you find.

Major Features
--------------

The new major features available for testing in this beta include:

* JSONB: 9.4 includes the new JSONB "binary JSON" type. This new
  storage format for document data is higher-performance, and comes with
  indexing, functions and operators for manipulating JSON data.
* Replication: The new Data Change Streaming API allows decoding and
  transformation of the replication stream.  This lays the foundation
  for new replication tools that support high-speed and more flexible
  replication and scale-out solutions.
* Materialized Views with "Refresh Concurrently", which permit
  fast-response background summary reports for complex data.
* ALTER SYSTEM SET, which enables modifications to postgresql.conf
  from the SQL command line and from remote clients, easing
  administration tasks.
