Debian DSA-2729-1 : openafs - several vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Plugin ID 69107


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


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:

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


Upgrade the openafs packages.

For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in version

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