PostgreSQL Security Releases: 8.1.4, 8.0.8, 7.4.13, 7.3.15

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group today released versions 8.1.4, 8.0.8, 7.4.13 and 7.3.15. This is an urgent update to close a security hole which can permit a SQL injection attack on some applications running PostgreSQL.

Users are urged to apply the update as soon as reasonably possible. Since the update affects client functionality, most driver projects will be updating this week as well.

Because the security issue involved is complex, we have added a section in the new Techdocs to explain it at http://www.postgresql.org/docs/techdocs.52; please read this first before applying the updates.

Downloads are available here on SourceForge and on the download page, and binaries from third party platform distributors should be already available.
