==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Summary:

PostgreSQL could be made to expose sensitive information.

Software Description:

Details:

It was discovered that PostgreSQL incorrectly handled certain temp

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:
