FreeBSD : krb5 -- unkeyed PAC checksum handling vulnerability (9f971cea-03f5-11e0-bf50-001a926c7637)

low Nessus Plugin ID 51104


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.


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


The MIT Kerberos team reports :

MIT krb5 incorrectly accepts an unkeyed checksum for PAC signatures.

An authenticated remote attacker can forge PACs if using a KDC that does not filter client-provided PAC data. This can result in privilege escalation against a service that relies on PAC contents to make authorization decisions.


Update the affected package.
