Comment (by ken@…):

 Perhaps we ought to mention part of what it says at
 [http://www.postgresql.org/about/news/1506/] :

 With this release, we are also alerting users to a known security hole
 that allows other users on the same machine to gain access to an operating
 system account while it is doing "make check": CVE-2014-0067. "Make check"
 is normally part of building PostgreSQL from source code. As it is not
 possible to fix this issue without causing significant issues to our
 testing infrastructure, a patch will be released separately and publicly.
 Until then, users are strongly advised not to run "make check" on machines
 where untrusted users have accounts.
