Package        : postgresql-common
Version        : 165+deb8u4
CVE ID         : CVE-2019-3466

Rich Mirch discovered that the pg_ctlcluster script didn't drop
privileges when creating socket/statistics temporary directories, which
could result in local privilege escalation.

in version 165+deb8u4.

We recommend that you upgrade your postgresql-common packages.
