It means the role has a password and that it most likely has a weak password.

I run it in a testing environment and got about 15 results, then run it in a production database and got about 90 passwords. I am implementing a password verification function now... any suggestions?

People REALLY need to start being careful about their passwords...

I will work on extending the dictionary to include spanish words...
