Vulnerability Assessment Details

SUSE-SA:2007:004: krb5

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the krb5 package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2007:004 (krb5).


Various bugs in the Kerberos5 libraries and tools were fixed which
could be used by remote attackers to crash and potentially execute
code in kadmind.

- CVE-2006-6144 / MITKRB5-SA-2006-002: the RPC library could call an
uninitialized function pointer, which created a security
vulnerability for kadmind.

- CVE-2006-6143 / MITKRB5-SA-2006-003: the GSS-API mechglue layer
could fail to initialize some output pointers, causing callers to
attempt to free uninitialized pointers. This caused a security
vulnerability in kadmind.
