PostgreSQL developers fix vulnerabilities 

,----[ Quote ]
| PostgreSQL 7 and 8 users are advised to 
| update their installations as the 
| development team has released new versions 
| which fix a vulnerability classed as 
| moderately severe in PL/perl and PL/tcl. 
| CVE-2010-1169, CVE-2010-1447 and 
| CVE-2010-1170 reports detail the 
| vulnerabilities involved. The changes 
| include the removal of the Safe.pm module, 
| which acted as a kind of sandbox for Perl 
| programs. Instead, PostgreSQL code now 
| includes a hard-wired list of permissible 
| Perl operators. According to the release 
| notes, one side effect of this is that 
| stored procedures written in Perl now 
| compile more quickly.

| needed a tool to remove outdated data from 
| its production databases. âWe couldnât 
| find an appropriate tool,â Wisser recalls, 
| âso I created Jailer.â


NTT and EnterpriseDB Contribute Code to Support Postgres Ecosystem and Encourage Further Development of Extensible Cluster Technology

| Based upon the open source Postgres code 
| and utilizing the same application 
| programming interface, Postgres-XC is a 
| write-scalable synchronous multi-master 
| Postgres cluster with both read and write-
| scalability. Designed to greatly increase 
| Postgres' scalability and reliability, 
| Postgres-XC is being contributed to the 
| open source community for further 
| development in order to leverage the 
| rapidly growing Postgres ecosystem of 
| developers, partners and end-users. 
| Postgres-XC, which is still in its early 
| development stage, already includes 
| significant feature functionality 
| including Global Transaction Management 
| and proven scalability.
