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.

Because the security issue involved is complex, we have added a section in
Techdocs 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.
