|Summary:||The remote host is missing an update for the 'postgresql'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.|
The remote host is missing an update for the 'postgresql'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
PostgreSQL is an advanced object-relational
database management system (DBMS).
* 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)
Red Hat would like to thank the PostgreSQL project for reporting this
issue. Upstream acknowledges Ben de Graaff, Jelte Fennema, and Jeroen van
der Ham as the original reporters.
