The PostgreSQL Global Development Group reports:

Today the PHP, OpenBSD and FreeBSD communities announced updates to
patch a security hole involving their crypt() hashing algorithms. This
issue is described in CVE-2012-2143. This vulnerability also affects a
minority of PostgreSQL users, and will be fixed in an update release on
June 4, 2012.
Affected users are those who use the crypt(text, text) function
with DES encryption in the optional pg_crypto module. Passwords
affected are those that contain characters that cannot be
represented with 7-bit ASCII. If a password contains a character
that has the most significant bit set (0x80), and DES encryption
is used, that character and all characters after it will be ignored.
