KB-11511: Nessus security scanner showing libssh vulnerability in Centrify Connectors

Privileged Access Service ,  

26 January,19 at 03:44 AM

Problem: Nessus security scanner reports a libssh vulnerability in Centrify Connectors

Cause: The Centrify connector uses /n Software's SSH server library.  This library, while similar to libssh, does not contain the libssh that is reported by the Nessus security scan report.  However, during the scan, a different vulnerability, 
that caused a channel to be opened for a short window when it should not have been open, was discovered.

Resolution: That issue was subsequently fixed by /n Software.   The library with the fix, /n Software version 16.0.6883.0,  is built into Centrify Privileged Access Service 18.11 connectors.  Installing the 18.11 Centrify connector will resolve the Nessus security scan report.
