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

low Nessus Plugin ID 51101

Language:

New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

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.
