Description

OpenSSH < 3.2.2 contains a buffer overflow in the Kerberos/AFS support code. In versions < 2.9.9, this can be used to gain a root shell remotely. In versions < 3.2.2, only a local user can gain a root shell.

Note that Kerberos/AFS support is not enabled by default. Additionally, vendor-supplied patches may have already been applied, even though this test cannot discern their presence.

Solution(s)

  • openbsd-openssh-upgrade-3_2_2

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
