Description of problem:
Postgres listens on any network interface (5432/tcp), but is only used by localhost. Restricting it (especially since the username and password are well known) is important. Leaving it the way it is will fail any security audit.

I think this is solved with the katello-password command that is now in the latest release of Katello
