Title: MIT Kerberos 5 Applications: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201201-14)
Date: January 23, 2012
Bug(s): #374229, #396137
Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in MIT Kerberos 5
Applications, the most severe of which may allow execution of arbitrary
A suite of applications that implement the Kerberos 5 network protocol
Vulnerable: < 1.0.2-r1
Unaffected: >= 1.0.2-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in MIT Kerberos 5
- An error in the FTP daemon prevents it from dropping its initial
effective group identifier (CVE-2011-1526).
- A boundary error in the telnet daemon and client could cause a buffer
An unauthenticated remote attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code
with the privileges of the user running the telnet daemon or client.
Furthermore, an authenticated remote attacker may be able to read or
write files owned by the same group as the effective group of the FTP
There is no known workaround at this time.
All MIT Kerberos 5 Applications users should upgrade to the latest
