Changelog

postgresql-8.3 (8.3.16-0ubuntu0.8.04) hardy-security; urgency=low

  * New upstream bug fix/security release 8.3.16: (LP: #866049)
    - Fix bugs in indexing of in-doubt HOT-updated tuples.
      These bugs could result in index corruption after reindexing a
      system catalog. They are not believed to affect user indexes.
    - Fix multiple bugs in GiST index page split processing.
      The probability of occurrence was low, but these could lead to
      index corruption.
    - Fix possible buffer overrun in tsvector_concat().
      The function could underestimate the amount of memory needed for
      its result, leading to server crashes.
    - Fix crash in xml_recv when processing a "standalone" parameter.
    - Avoid possibly accessing off the end of memory in "ANALYZE" and in
      SJIS-2004 encoding conversion.
      This fixes some very-low-probability server crash scenarios.
    - Fix race condition in relcache init file invalidation.
      There was a window wherein a new backend process could read a stale
      init file but miss the inval messages that would tell it the data
      is stale. The result would be bizarre failures in catalog accesses,
      typically "could not read block 0 in file ..." later during
      startup.
    - Fix memory leak at end of a GiST index scan.
      Commands that perform many separate GiST index scans, such as
      verification of a new GiST-based exclusion constraint on a table
      already containing many rows, could transiently require large
      amounts of memory due to this leak.
    - Fix performance problem when constructing a large, lossy bitmap.
    - Fix array- and path-creating functions to ensure padding bytes are
      zeroes. This avoids some situations where the planner will think that
      semantically-equal constants are not equal, resulting in poor
      optimization.
    - Fix dump bug for VALUES in a view.
    - Disallow SELECT FOR UPDATE/SHARE on sequences.
      This operation doesn't work as expected and can lead to failures.
    - Defend against integer overflow when computing size of a hash table.
    - Fix cases where "CLUSTER" might attempt to access already-removed
      TOAST data.
    - Fix portability bugs in use of credentials control messages for
      "peer" authentication.
    - Fix SSPI login when multiple roundtrips are required.
      The typical symptom of this problem was "The function requested is
      not supported" errors during SSPI login.
    - Fix typo in pg_srand48 seed initialization.
      This led to failure to use all bits of the provided seed. This
      function is not used on most platforms (only those without
      srandom), and the potential security exposure from a
      less-random-than-expected seed seems minimal in any case.
    - Avoid integer overflow when the sum of LIMIT and OFFSET values
      exceeds 2^63.
    - Add overflow checks to int4 and int8 versions of generate_series().
    - Fix trailing-zero removal in to_char(). In a format with FM and no digit
      positions after the decimal point, zeroes to the left of the decimal
      point could be removed incorrectly.
    - Fix pg_size_pretty() to avoid overflow for inputs close to 2^63.
    - Fix psql's counting of script file line numbers during COPY from a
      different file.
    - Fix pg_restore's direct-to-database mode for
      standard_conforming_strings.
      pg_restore could emit incorrect commands when restoring directly to
      a database server from an archive file that had been made with
      standard_conforming_strings set to on.
    - Fix write-past-buffer-end and memory leak in libpq's LDAP service
      lookup code.
    - In libpq, avoid failures when using nonblocking I/O and an SSL
      connection.
    - Improve libpq's handling of failures during connection startup.
      In particular, the response to a server report of fork() failure
      during SSL connection startup is now saner.
    - Improve libpq's error reporting for SSL failures.
    - Make ecpglib write double values with 15 digits precision.
    - In ecpglib, be sure LC_NUMERIC setting is restored after an error.
    - Apply upstream fix for blowfish signed-character bug
      (CVE-2011-2483).
      "contrib/pg_crypto"'s blowfish encryption code could give wrong
      results on platforms where char is signed (which is most), leading
      to encrypted passwords being weaker than they should be.
    - Fix memory leak in "contrib/seg".
    - Fix pgstatindex() to give consistent results for empty indexes.
    - Allow building with perl 5.14 (Alex Hunsaker)
