Description Tom Lane 2005-02-10 13:11:29 EST
Description of problem:
Some of the security issues mentioned in bug#147442 also apply to the
AS2.1 branch: specifically the LOAD issue CAN-2005-0227 and some
aspects of the plpgsql buffer overruns CAN-2005-0245, CAN-2005-0247.

Also, I noted that CAN-2004-0977 (bug#136301) and the low-priority
security issues mentioned in bug#136947 were never back-ported to the
AS2.1 branch.

In addition, while the Postgres community stopped maintaining PG 7.1
years ago, they have continued to back-port significant bug fixes
(data-loss and server-crash issues) into the PG 7.2 branch, and most
of these issues also apply to PG 7.1.  It's past time we updated AS2.1
with these fixes.  Our bug#130818 describes the most significant of
these issues but there are numerous minor ones.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
postgresql-7.1.3-5.rhel2.1AS

How reproducible:
