FreeBSD : krb5 -- multiple checksum handling vulnerabilities (0d57c1d9-03f4-11e0-bf50-001a926c7637)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 51100


The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.


The MIT Kerberos team reports :

MIT krb incorrectly accepts an unkeyed checksum with DES session keys for version 2 (RFC 4121) of the GSS-API krb5 mechanism.

An unauthenticated remote attacker can forge GSS tokens that are intended to be integrity-protected but unencrypted, if the targeted pre-existing application session uses a DES session key.

MIT krb5 KDC incorrectly accepts RFC 3961 key-derivation checksums using RC4 keys when verifying the req-checksum in a KrbFastArmoredReq.

An unauthenticated remote attacker has a 1/256 chance of swapping a client-issued KrbFastReq into a different KDC-REQ, if the armor key is RC4. The consequences are believed to be minor.


Update the affected packages.
