Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA178] DSA-178-1 heimdal

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-178-1 heimdal

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The SuSE Security Team has reviewed critical parts of the Heimdal
package such as the kadmind and kdc server. While doing so several
potential buffer overflows and other bugs have been uncovered and
fixed. Remote attackers can probably gain remote root access on
systems without fixes. Since these services usually run on
authentication servers these bugs are considered very serious.
These problems have been fixed in version 0.4e-7.woody.4 for the
current stable distribution (woody), in version 0.2l-7.4 for the old
stable distribution (potato) and version 0.4e-21 for the unstable
distribution (sid).
We recommend that you upgrade your Heimdal packages immediately.
