Subject: Re: AIX password enumeration possible


Tested with AIX 5.1 ML05, Commercial SSH v3.2.2

Known account on yyyy set to rlogin=false, ssh allows only 1 connection attempt before error.


Case 1: Incorrect Password given.

user@...x:> ssh yyyy
user's password: 
warning: Authentication failed.
Disconnected; no more authentication methods available (No further authentication methods available.).


Case 2: Correct Password given.

user@...x:> ssh yyyy
user's password: 
warning: Authentication failed.
Disconnected; no more authentication methods available (No further authentication methods available.).


It seems as if the commercial ssh behaves differently and uses it's own messages. All r-services and telnet are no longer existant on our systems, so it appears to me that the easiest solution would be to use the commercial ssh and dump the r-services. That's seems the best way for ppl who are eligible to use the source release of the commercial ssh. 

Regards,

Sven Specker
