Description Jan Lieskovsky 2009-12-07 10:52:03 UTC
Integer underflow flaws, leading to heap-based corruption, were found
in the way MIT Kerberos Key Distribution Center (KDC) used to
decrypt ciphertexts encrypted with Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)
and ARCFOUR (RC4) encryption algorithms. A remote KDC client
could provide a specially-crafted AES or RC4 encrypted ciphertext(s),
which once processed by a central KDC would lead to denial of
service (KDC crash or abort) or, potentially, to KDC relying
authentication services compromise or arbitrary code execution
with the privileges of the KDC centre.
