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

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 51104


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.
