Package        : postgresql-8.4
Vulnerability  : guessable random numbers
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2013-1900

A vulnerability was discovered in PostgreSQL database server. Random
numbers
generated by contrib/pgcrypto functions may be easy for another database
user
to guess.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 8.4.17-0squeeze1.

For the testing (wheezy) and unstable distribution (sid), postgresql-8.4
packages have been removed; in those, this problem has been fixed in
postgresql-9.1 9.1.9-0wheezy1 (wheezy), and 9.1.9-1 (sid) respectively.

NOTE: postgresql-8.4 in Squeeze is not affected by CVE-2013-1899 (database
files corruption) and CVE-2013-1901 (unprivileged user can interfere with
in-progress backups).

We recommend that you upgrade your postgresql-8.4 packages.
