--------------------------------------------------------------------- Fedora Update Notification FEDORA-2005-269 2005-03-29 --------------------------------------------------------------------- Product : Fedora Core 2 Name : krb5 Version : 1.3.6 Release : 4 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 ( has assigned the names CAN-2005-0468 and CAN-2005-0469 to these issues. --------------------------------------------------------------------- * Wed Mar 23 2005 Nalin Dahyabhai <> 1.3.6-4 - drop krshd patch * Thu Mar 17 2005 Nalin Dahyabhai <> - add draft fix from Tom Yu for slc_add_reply() buffer overflow (CAN-2005-0469) - add draft fix from Tom Yu for env_opt_add() buffer overflow (CAN-2005-0468) --------------------------------------------------------------------- This update can be downloaded from: 3c210dbdcfb5f01a35f52632abbd3e58 SRPMS/krb5-1.3.6-4.src.rpm 2b4e4f7ffe208989572b173efa18c4b4 x86_64/krb5-devel-1.3.6-4.x86_64.rpm 67a3ffb77c8f92b235d503380ff54b32 x86_64/krb5-libs-1.3.6-4.x86_64.rpm 5d8e752002f27ca2ea7c8f40a6247b37 x86_64/krb5-server-1.3.6-4.x86_64.rpm b01504865b91a46e9f6dab345a939bf6 x86_64/krb5-workstation-1.3.6-4.x86_64.rpm 72def6a5e69a30e63ab071f581ad1729 x86_64/debug/krb5-debuginfo-1.3.6-4.x86_64.rpm 891e77b16aa127543976583a0b134464 x86_64/krb5-libs-1.3.6-4.i386.rpm e26b5c97144daa666babf9e01bc90b25 i386/krb5-devel-1.3.6-4.i386.rpm 891e77b16aa127543976583a0b134464 i386/krb5-libs-1.3.6-4.i386.rpm 16a523103910c903de48a8c2e33c6524 i386/krb5-server-1.3.6-4.i386.rpm f36537a81b6330e72c01de759196fb35 i386/krb5-workstation-1.3.6-4.i386.rpm 123d9371167ecbe81399b256ece22399 i386/debug/krb5-debuginfo-1.3.6-4.i386.rpm This update can also be installed with the Update Agent; you can launch the Update Agent with the 'up2date' command. --------------------------------------------------------------------- -- fedora-announce-list mailing list
