FreeBSD : krb5 -- multiple checksum handling vulnerabilities (11bbccbc-03ee-11e0-bcdb-001fc61c2a55)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 51101

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: 1.4

Synopsis

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

Description

The MIT Kerberos team reports :

MIT krb5 clients incorrectly accept an unkeyed checksums in the SAM-2 preauthentication challenge.

An unauthenticated remote attacker could alter a SAM-2 challenge, affecting the prompt text seen by the user or the kind of response sent to the KDC. Under some circumstances, this can negate the incremental security benefit of using a single-use authentication mechanism token.

MIT krb5 incorrectly accepts RFC 3961 key-derivation checksums using RC4 keys when verifying KRB-SAFE messages.

An unauthenticated remote attacker has a 1/256 chance of forging KRB-SAFE messages in an application protocol if the targeted pre-existing session uses an RC4 session key. Few application protocols use KRB-SAFE messages.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
