  (DBMS).

  A signedness issue was found in the way the crypt() function in the
  PostgreSQL pgcrypto module handled 8-bit characters in passwords when using
  Blowfish hashing. Up to three characters immediately preceding a non-ASCII
  character (one with the high bit set) had no effect on the hash result,
  thus shortening the effective password length. This made brute-force
  guessing more efficient as several different passwords were hashed to the
  same value. (CVE-2011-2483)
  
  Note: Due to the CVE-2011-2483 fix, after installing this update some users
  may not be able to log in to applications that store user passwords, hashed
  with Blowfish using the PostgreSQL crypt() function, in a back-end
  PostgreSQL database. Unsafe processing can be re-enabled for specific
  passwords (allowing affected users to log in) by changing their hash prefix
  to "$2x$".
  
  These updated postgresql84 packages upgrade PostgreSQL to version 8.4.9.
  Refer to the PostgreSQL Release Notes for a full list of changes:
  
  <a  rel= &qt nofollow &qt  href= &qt http://www.postgresql.org/docs/8.4/static/release.html &qt >http://www.postgresql.org/docs/8.4/static/release.html</a>
  
  All PostgreSQL users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
  which correct this issue. If the postgresql service is running, it will be
  automatically restarted after installing this update.";
