Description Jan Lieskovsky 2013-03-29 12:49:02 EDT
A security flaw was found in the way REPLICATION privilege checking mechanism of PostgreSQL, an advanced Object-Relational database management system, performed user privilege verification when preparing and finishing of on-line backup(s). An unprivileged database user could use this flaw to interfere with succesful creation of the routine backups.
