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
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.
