Doc Text:
A flaw was found in the OTP kdcpreauth module of MIT Kerberos. A remote attacker could use this flaw to 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.

Description Martin Prpič 2015-04-28 14:46:49 UTC
The following flaw was found in MIT Kerberos:

In the OTP kdcpreauth module, the TKT_FLG_PRE_AUTH bit was set before the request was successfully verified. In the PKINIT kdcpreauth module, code 0 was returned on empty input or an unconfigured realm. Together, these bugs could cause the KDC preauth framework to erroneously treat a request as pre-authenticated.

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.
