The remote host is missing an update for the 'postgresql'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
PostgreSQL is an advanced object-relational
database management system (DBMS).

Security Fix(es):

* It was found that authenticating to a PostgreSQL database account with an
empty password was possible despite libpq's refusal to send an empty
password. A remote attacker could potentially use this flaw to gain access
to database accounts with empty passwords. (CVE-2017-7546)
