Default PostgreSQL updates to close denial-of-service hole

From http://h-online.com/-1799938

A misdeclared enum_recv function within PostgreSQL meant that a simple SQL command was all that was needed to crash PostgreSQL. The hole, assigned the number CVE-2013-0255 for easy identification, could be used to examine the contents of server memory, at least in theory. The PostgreSQL developers have therefore announced the release of updates to PostgreSQL 9.2, 9.1, 9.0, 8.4 and 8.3 to fix the bug and close the hole.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
