Description Richard Scheffenegger freebsd_committer 2020-04-06 18:12:51 UTC

there should be a new rscheff@freebsd.org account, where this rscheff@gmx.at account should be merged with.
Comment 1 Richard Scheffenegger freebsd_committer 2020-04-06 18:19:02 UTC
Just to confirm that the new @freebsd.org account exists.

How is simply resetting the kpasswd via SSH using the right @freebsd user name not an easy route for a denial of service? (E.g. anyone can reset the kerberos passwords for all commiters, who have to recover their passwords tediously thereafter, no?

(In reply to Richard Scheffenegger from comment #1)

Hi Richard,

Accounts have been merged. Closing PR as fixed.

You can reset the user's password only if you have user's private SSH key to login to the kpasswd server. Without it attacker can only get this far:

% ssh rscheff@kpasswd.freebsd.org
Permission denied (publickey).
