Description Morten Sylvest Olsen 2006-06-29 08:04:02 UTC
Description of problem:

gss_krb5_copy_ccache leaks a copy of each credential

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use the function gss_krb5_copy_ccache 
Actual results:

A copy of each credential has now been leaked

Expected results:

No leaked memory

Additional info:

src/lib/gssapi/krb5/copy_ccache.c invokes krb5_ccc_next_cred in a loop without
freeing the returned credentials after storing them in the other cache. There
seem to be no workaround.

This has not been fixed upstream in krb5-1.5beta2

Comment 1 Morten Sylvest Olsen 2006-06-29 08:18:26 UTC
heimdal does the correct thing: 

while (ret == 0 &&
           krb5_cc_next_cred_match(context, from, &cursor, &cred,
                                   whichfields, mcreds) == 0) {
        if (matched)
        ret = krb5_cc_store_cred(context, to, &cred);
        krb5_free_cred_contents(context, &cred);

(from heimdal-0.7.2/lib/krb5/cache.c)
