Kerberos PingPong attack

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Searches for the existence of a bad krb server

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is running a kerberos server, which seems to be vulnerable
to a 'ping-pong' attack.

When contacted on the UDP port, this service always respond, even
to malformed requests.

An easy attack is 'ping-pong' in which a possible hacker spoofs a packet between
two machines running this service. This will cause them to spew characters at
each other, slowing the machines down and saturating the network.

Solution : Disable this service if you do not use it.
Network Security Threat Level: Low
