Default PostgreSQL security update fixes a buffer overrun

From http://www.h-online.com/security/new...n-1181511.html

Quote:
The PostgreSQL developers have released security updates for the database system, with new versions, 9.0.3, 8.4.7, 8.3.14 and 8.2.20 released for the 9.0, 8.4, 8.3 and 8.2 active branches. The update includes a fix to prevent a buffer overrun in the contrib intarray module's input function which could allow a return address to be overwritten by malicious code. As the affected module is an optional install, the only users affected are those that have installed the intarray module; this contains useful functions for manipulation of one dimensional arrays of integers.
