DESCRIPTION:
Two vulnerabilities have been reported in PostgreSQL, which can be
exploited by malicious people to disclose certain sensitive
information and compromise a user's system.

1) An error within the "xml_parse()" function when parsing DTD data
within XML documents can be exploited to read arbitrary files.

2) An error within the "xslt_process()" function when parsing XSLT
style sheets can be exploited to e.g. create or overwrite arbitrary
files.

The vulnerabilities are reported in versions prior to 9.1.5, 9.0.9,
8.4.13, and 8.3.20.

SOLUTION:
Update to version 9.1.5, 9.0.9, 8.4.13, or 8.3.20.
