Today we received recent version of postgresql via unattanded upgrades. I've checked the changelog and see no reason for such update there, it looks like pretty old changelog from old postgresql-11 buid:

# zcat /usr/share/doc/postgresql-9.5/changelog.Debian.gz | head
postgresql-11 (11.2-1.pgdg14.04+1) trusty-pgdg; urgency=medium

  * Rebuild for trusty-pgdg.
  * Changes applied by generate-pgdg-source:
    + Using old-style -dbg packages in debian/control.
    + Using old-style PIE config in debian/rules.
    + Disable llvm jit support.
    + Disable systemd support.

I expect an information about CVE caused the update.

Thank you.
