    Post Unanswered: How to apply vulnerability fix on postgresql database

    I want to apply CVE-2017-7546 on below versions:

    9.2.2
    9.5.7
    9.6.1

    This is my first attempt ever to apply a fix.

    I did not find any referal documents as well.

    Please advise.

    Thanks

    Just update to that version. If you are using Linux, your package manager (yum, apt, rpm) will do that automatically.

    But all those versions are outdated. The current versions to which you should update are:

    9.2.23
    9.5.9
    9.6.5

    9.2 is no longer maintained. You should upgrade that installation as soon as possible.
