Several vulnerabilities were discovered in PostgreSQL database server.

CVE-2013-1899

Mitsumasa Kondo and Kyotaro Horiguchi of NTT Open Source Software Center
discovered that it was possible for a connection request containing a
database name that begins with "-" to be crafted that can damage or destroy
files within a server's data directory. Anyone with access to the port the
PostgreSQL server listens on can initiate this request.

CVE-2013-1900

Random numbers generated by contrib/pgcrypto functions may be easy for
another database user to guess.

An unprivileged user could run commands that could interfere with
in-progress backups
