KB-2457: Is Centrify OpenSSH affected by CVE-2012-0814?

Centrify DirectControl ,  

12 April,16 at 11:10 AM

Applies to: All versions of Centrify-enabled OpenSSH.
 
Question:

Is Centrify-enabled OpenSSH affected by the vulnerability mentioned in the below links?
 

(All links provided as a courtesy)
 
Answer:
 
Depending on the version of Centrify-enabled OpenSSH, this affects private key authentication only. If there is no use of this as authentication method (by using Kerberos GSSAPI, or keyboard interactive through PAM), then no effect.

At time of writing this KB, Centrify released 5.9p1 Openssh. If there is any concerns please upgrade just the OpenSSH component by running Centrify's install.sh script and choosing custom install (C). 

Note: It is NOT dependent on Centrify DirectControl version, it will be able to upgrade OpenSSH independently.
