GENTOO LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT 200210-011
- - --------------------------------------------------------------------

PACKAGE : krb5
SUMMARY : buffer overflow
DATE    : 2002-10-28 14:10 UTC
EXPLOIT : remote

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

A stack buffer overflow in the implementation of the Kerberos v4
compatibility administration daemon (kadmind4) in the MIT krb5
distribution can be exploited to gain unauthorized root access to a
KDC host.  The attacker does not need to authenticate to the daemon to
successfully perform this attack.  At least one exploit is known to
exist in the wild, and at least one attacker is reasonably competent
at cleaning up traces of intrusion.

http://web.mit.edu/kerberos/www/advisories/MITKRB5-SA-2002-002-kadm4.txt

SOLUTION

It is recommended that all Gentoo Linux users who are running
app-crypt/krb5 and earlier update their systems as follows:

emerge rsync
emerge krb5
emerge clean
