- Vulnerability Conditions

Vulnerability is valid if product versions listed below are used TOGETHER WITH(AND)

- Metasploit Modules Related To CVE-2018-15473

SSH Username Enumeration
This module uses a malformed packet or timing attack to enumerate users on an OpenSSH server. The default action sends a malformed (corrupted) SSH_MSG_USERAUTH_REQUEST packet using public key authentication (must be enabled) to enumerate users. On some versions of OpenSSH under some configurations, OpenSSH will return a "permission denied" error for an invalid user faster than for a valid user, creating an opportunity for a timing attack to enumerate users. Testing note: invalid users were logged, while valid users were not. YMMV.
