E.99. Release 7.4.16

[Nota]

Release date

2007-02-05

This release contains a variety of fixes from 7.4.15, including a security fix. For information about new features in the 7.4 major release, see Sezione E.115, «Release 7.4».

E.99.1. Migration to Version 7.4.16

A dump/restore is not required for those running 7.4.X. However, if you are upgrading from a version earlier than 7.4.11, see the release notes for 7.4.11.

E.99.2. Changes

  • Remove security vulnerability that allowed connected users to read backend memory (Tom)

    The vulnerability involves suppressing the normal check that a SQL function returns the data type it's declared to, or changing the data type of a table column used in a SQL function (CVE-2007-0555). This error can easily be exploited to cause a backend crash, and in principle might be used to read database content that the user should not be able to access.

  • Fix rare bug wherein btree index page splits could fail due to choosing an infeasible split point (Heikki Linnakangas)

  • Fix for rare Assert() crash triggered by UNION (Tom)

  • Tighten security of multi-byte character processing for UTF8 sequences over three bytes long (Tom)
