Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200601-15

database component HSQLDB is installed with an empty password for the
database administrator "sa".

Impact

Since the database listens globally by default, a possible hacker can
connect and issue arbitrary commands, including execution of binaries
installed on the host.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.
