CVSS 8.1 CVE-2021-36369

CVSS 8.1 CVSS:3.1/AV:L/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H

The Dropbear client through 2020.81 proceeds with establishing an SSH session even if it has never sent a substantive authentication response. This makes it easier for an attacker-controlled SSH server to present a later spoofed authentication prompt (that the attacker can use to capture credential data, and use that data for purposes that are undesired by the client user).

PoC Exploit

The trivial authentication phishing attack is described in Trivial Authentication.
