Description Nalin Dahyabhai 2004-06-01 17:27:54 EDT
Description of problem:

The krb5_aname_to_localname() library function contains multiple
buffer overflows which could be exploited to gain unauthorized root

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

the errata that were just issued for this for fc1 and fc2, did they
apply the first patch or the second from the mit announcement.

they issued a correction to the patch and I wanted to make sure the
bug was not present.
