=====================================================================
Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Important: krb5 security update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2011:0356-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2011-0356.html
Issue date: 2011-03-16
CVE Names: CVE-2011-0284
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

Updated krb5 packages that fix one security issue are now available for Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
important security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)
base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the
CVE link in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop Optional (v. 6) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node (v. 6) - x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node Optional (v. 6) - x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6) - i386, ppc64, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6) - i386, x86_64

3. Description:

Kerberos is a network authentication system which allows clients and
servers to authenticate to each other using symmetric encryption and a
trusted third-party, the Key Distribution Center (KDC). The Public Key
Cryptography for Initial Authentication in Kerberos (PKINIT) capability
provides support for using public-key authentication with Kerberos.

A double-free flaw was found in the way the MIT Kerberos KDC handled
initial authentication requests (AS-REQ), when the KDC was configured to
provide the PKINIT capability. A remote attacker could use this flaw to
cause the KDC daemon to abort by using a specially-crafted AS-REQ request.
(CVE-2011-0284)

All krb5 users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
a backported patch to correct this issue. After installing the updated
packages, the krb5kdc daemon will be restarted automatically.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
