Description

The process_as_req function in the Key Distribution Center (KDC) in MIT Kerberos 5 (aka krb5) 1.10.x before 1.10.3 does not initialize a certain structure member, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (uninitialized pointer dereference and daemon crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a malformed AS-REQ request.

Solution(s)

  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-app-crypt-mit-krb5

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
