Description Vincent Danen 2013-11-05 17:11:13 UTC
It was reported [1] that if a KDC serves multiple realms, certain requests could cause the setup_server_realm() funtion to dereference a null pointer, resulting in a crash of the KDC (Key Distribution Center).  This can be triggered by an unauthenticated user.

This has been correct in git [2].
