SSH Secure-RPC Weak Encrypted Authentication Key Recovery (deprecated)

Low

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a flaw that allows attackers to retrieve sensitive files or data.

Description

The remote host is running SSH Communication Security's SSH 1.2.27 to 1.2.30. With Secure-RPC, this version may allow local attackers to recover a SUN-DES-1 magic phrase generated by another user that the attacker can use to decrypt the private key file of the user.

Solution

Upgrade or patch according to vendor recommendations.
