The PostgreSQL team will be releasing a security update for all supported versions on April 4th, 2013. The release will fix a "high-exposure" security vulnerability. More information is not publicly available at this time, due to the sensitive nature of the vulnerability.


Instructure is monitoring the situation and will apply the update as soon as it is available, after testing it in a test environment. This post will be updated as more information becomes publicly available. Canvas CV users who are using PostgreSQL are encouraged to monitor the mailing list as well, and upgrade as soon as possible.
