The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
The following packages have been upgraded to a later upstream version:
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.
- An authorization flaw was found in the way PostgreSQL
handled access to the pg_user_mappings view on foreign
servers. A remote, authenticated attacker could
potentially use this flaw to retrieve passwords from the
user mappings defined by the foreign server owners
without actually having the privileges to do so.
