FreeBSD : krb5 -- requires_preauth bypass in PKINIT-enabled KDC (406636fe-055d-11e5-aab1-d050996490d0)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 83901
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

MIT reports :

In MIT krb5 1.12 and later, when the KDC is configured with PKINIT support, an unauthenticated remote attacker can bypass the requires_preauth flag on a client principal and obtain a ciphertext encrypted in the principal's long-term key. This ciphertext could be used to conduct an off-line dictionary attack against the user's password.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
