Description Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2004-06-02 05:09:42 EDT
The krb5_aname_to_localname() library function contains multiple
buffer overflows which could be exploited to gain unauthorized root
access.

Only configurations which include auth_to_local_names or auth_to_local
directives (neither of which are included in default configurations)
are vulnerable.
