Debian DSA-2729-1 : openafs - several vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Plugin ID 69107

Synopsis

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

Description

OpenAFS, the implementation of the distributed filesystem AFS, has been updated to no longer use DES for the encryption of tickets.
Additional migration steps are needed to fully set the update into effect. For more information please see the upstream advisory:
OPENAFS-SA-2013-003

In addition the 'encrypt' option to the 'vos' tool was fixed.

Solution

Upgrade the openafs packages.

For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in version 1.4.12.1+dfsg-4+squeeze2.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 1.6.1-3+deb7u1.
