Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security
impact of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base
score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each
vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

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)

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."
