Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The MIT Kerberos Development Team has discovered a number of
vulnerabilities in the MIT Kerberos Version 5 software. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following
vulnerabilities:
A double-free error may permit unauthenticated remote attackers to
execute arbitrary code on KDC or clients.
Several double-free errors may permit authenticated attackers to
execute arbitrary code on Kerberos application servers.
A remotely exploitable denial of service vulnerability has been
found in the KDC and libraries.
Several double-free errors may permit remote attackers to execute
