Description Seth Vidal 2003-01-28 23:57:13 UTC
Description of problem: According to the included URL krb5's kdc <1.2.5 is
vulnerable to multiple attacks.

Are there patches and/or errata in the queue for release?

would a rebuild of srpms from 8.0 work on 7.3?



thanks

Comment 1 Mark J. Cox 2003-02-06 11:23:32 UTC
Only the following two of the four listed vulnerabilities apply to Red Hat Linux
7.3:

An integer signedness error in the ASN.1 decoder before version 1.2.5
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via a large unsigned
data element length, which is later used as a negative value. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned the name CAN-2002-0036
to this issue. Red Hat Linux 8.0 and later is not affected by this issue.

The Key Distribution Center (KDC) before version 1.2.5 allows remote,
authenticated, attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) on KDCs
within the same realm via a certain protocol request that causes a null
dereference. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned
the name CAN-2003-0058 to this issue. Red Hat Linux 8.0 and later is not
affected by this issue.

An advisory containing backported patches for these issues is being worked on

Comment 2 Mark J. Cox 2003-04-23 10:36:01 UTC
These and other issues were fixed by errata
