Description :

GaŽl Delalleau discovered a buffer overflow in the env_opt_add()
function of the Kerberos 4 and 5 telnet clients. By sending specially
crafted replies, a malicious telnet server could exploit this to
execute arbitrary code with the rights of the user running the
telnet client. (CVE-2005-0468)

GaŽl Delalleau discovered a buffer overflow in the handling of the
LINEMODE suboptions in the telnet clients of Kerberos 4 and 5. By
sending a specially constructed reply containing a large number of SLC
(Set Local Character) commands, a remote attacker (i. e. a malicious
telnet server) could execute arbitrary commands with the rights of
the user running the telnet client. (CVE-2005-0469)

Daniel Wachdorf discovered two remote vulnerabilities in the Key
Distribution Center of Kerberos 5 (krb5-kdc). By sending certain TCP
connection requests, a remote attacker could trigger a double-freeing
of memory, which led to memory corruption and a crash of the KDC
server. (CVE-2005-1174). Under rare circumstances the sam
