Security releases for all active PostgreSQL versions are available for download.

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group today released versions 8.1.4, 8.0.8, 7.4.13 and 7.3.15.  This is an urgent update to close a security hole which can permit a SQL injection attack on some applications running PostgreSQL.

Users are urged to apply the update as soon as reasonably possible.  Since the update affects client functionality, most driver projects will be updating this week as well.

The security issue involved is complex, so a section in Techdocs has been added to explain it: http://www.postgresql.org/docs/techdocs.52.  Please
read this first before applying the updates.

Downloads are available on the download page: http://www.postgresql.org/download.  Binaries for some platforms should be already available.
