Due to recent security vulnerabilities reported on BugTraq, concerning
several buffer overruns found in PostgreSQL, the PostgreSQL Global
Development Team today released v7.2.2 of PostgreSQL that fixes these
vulnerabilities.

The following buffer overruns have been identified and addressed:

		... in handling long datetime input
		... in repeat()
		... in lpad() and rpad() with multibyte
		... in SET TIME ZONE and TZ env var

Although v7.2.2 is a purely plug-n-play upgrade from v7.2.1, requiring no
dump-n-reload of the database, it should be noted that these
vulnerabilities are only critical on "open" or "shared" systems, as they
require the ability to be able to connect to the database before they can
be exploited.

The latest release is available at:

	ftp://ftp.postgresql.org/pub/sources/v7.2.2

As well as at appropriate mirror sites.

Please report any bugs/problems with this release to:

		pgsql-bugs(at)postgresql(dot)org
