A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 18.10 - Ubuntu 18.04 LTS


PostgreSQL could be made to run SQL statements as the administrator.

Software Description: - postgresql-10: Object-relational SQL database


It was discovered that PostgreSQL incorrectly handled certain trigger definitions when running pg_upgrade or pg_dump. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to execute arbitrary SQL statements with superuser privileges.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 18.10:
postgresql-10 10.6-0ubuntu0.18.10.1

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
postgresql-10 10.6-0ubuntu0.18.04.1

This update uses a new upstream release, which includes additional bug fixes. After a standard system update you need to restart PostgreSQL to make all the necessary changes.
