New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 5.9
SynopsisThe remote database server can be accessed without a password.
DescriptionIt is possible to connect to the remote PostgreSQL database server using an unpassworded account. This may allow an attacker to launch further attacks against the database.
SolutionLog into this host and set a password for any affected accounts using the 'ALTER USER' command.
In addition, configure the service by editing the file 'pg_hba.conf' to require a password (or Kerberos) authentication for all remote hosts that have legitimate access to this service and to require a password locally using the line 'local all password'.
