Posted on: 12/21/2004 06:04 PM

Updated krb5 packages has been released for Fedora Core 2

Fedora Update Notification

Product : Fedora Core 2
Name : krb5
Version : 1.3.6

Release : 1

Summary : The Kerberos network authentication system.
Description :
Kerberos V5 is a trusted-third-party network authentication system, which can improve your network's security by eliminating the insecure practice of cleartext passwords.

A heap based buffer overflow bug was found in the administration library of Kerberos 1.3.5 and earlier. This overflow in the password history handling code could allow an authenticated remote attacker to execute commands on a realm's master Kerberos KDC. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-1189 to this issue.

Additionally a temporary file bug was found in the Kerberos krb5-send-pr command. It is possible that an attacker could create a specially crafted temporary file that could allow an arbitrary file to be overwritten which the victim has write access to. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0971 to this issue.
