Rich Mirch discovered that the pg_ctlcluster script didn't drop privileges when creating socket/statistics temporary directories, which could result in local privilege escalation.

For the oldstable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in version 181+deb9u3.

For the stable distribution (buster), this problem has been fixed in version 200+deb10u3.

We recommend that you upgrade your postgresql-common packages.
