Description David Jee 2003-11-04 14:42:47 EST
In postgresql versions 7.2.x and 7.3.x (including 7.3.4), when the
input string to to_timestamp() is shorter than what the format string
expects, it may run off the end of the input string, resulting in a leak.

Please see the URL link to the postgresql mailing list archives for
more details.
