Fedora Update Notification

Product : Fedora Core 3
Name : krb5
Version : 1.3.6

Release : 5

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.

Update Information:

Updated krb5 packages which fix two buffer overflow vulnerabilities in the included Kerberos-aware telnet client are now available.

Kerberos is a networked authentication system which uses a trusted third party (a KDC) to authenticate clients and servers to each other.

The krb5-workstation package includes a Kerberos-aware telnet client. Two buffer overflow flaws were discovered in the way the telnet client handles messages from a server. An attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code on a victim's machine if the victim can be tricked into connecting to a malicious telnet server. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CAN-2005-0468 and CAN-2005-0469 to these issues.
