A security issue has been reported in OpenAFS, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose certain sensitive information.

The security issue is caused due to an unspecified error when handing the "-encrypt" option passed to the "vos" volume management command and can be exploited to disclose the communication contents via e.g. MitM (Man-in-the-Middle) attacks.

The security issue is reported in versions prior to 1.6.5 and 1.4.15.
