Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2005-045: krb

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the krb packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated Kerberos (krb5) packages that correct a buffer overflow bug are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat
Security Response Team.

Kerberos is a networked authentication system that uses a trusted third
party (a KDC) to authenticate clients and servers to each other.

A heap based buffer overflow bug was found in the administration library of
Kerberos 1.3.5 and earlier. This bug could permit an authenticated remote
attacker to execute arbitrary commands on a realm's master Kerberos KDC.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the name CVE-2004-1189 to this issue.

All users of krb5 should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported security patches to resolve these issues.
