Issue date: 2004-08-31
Updated on: 2004-08-31
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Keywords: krb5 double-free asn.1

----------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary:

Updated Kerberos (krb5) packages that correct double-free and ASN.1 parsing bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (Advanced Server) version 2.1 - i386, ia64
Red Hat Linux Advanced Workstation 2.1 - ia64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 2.1 - i386
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 2.1 - i386

3. Problem description:

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

Several double-free bugs were found in the Kerberos 5 KDC and libraries. A remote attacker could potentially exploit these flaws to execute arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CAN-2004-0642 and CAN-2004-0643 to these issues.

A double-free bug was also found in the krb524 server (CAN-2004-0772), however this issue was fixed for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 users by a previous erratum, RHSA-2003:052.

An infinite loop bug was found in the Kerberos 5 ASN.1 decoder library. A remote attacker may be able to trigger this flaw and cause a denial of service. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0644 to this issue.

All users of krb5 should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported security patches to resolve these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released errata relevant to your system have been applied. Use Red Hat Network to download and update your packages. To launch the Red Hat Update Agent, use the following command:
