Description Jan Lieskovsky 2013-04-09 12:27:16 UTC
A NULL pointer deference flaw was found in the way key distribution center (KDC) of MIT Kerberos 5, a network authentication system, performed processing of certain ticket-granting service requests (TGS-REQs). A remote authenticated attacker could use this flaw to cause the KDC process to crash (attempting to dereference a NULL pointer).
