Severity CVSS Published Added Modified
4 (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P) March 05, 2010 August 11, 2017 September 12, 2017

Description

The kssl_keytab_is_available function in ssl/kssl.c in OpenSSL before 0.9.8n, when Kerberos is enabled but Kerberos configuration files cannot be opened, does not check a certain return value, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and daemon crash) via SSL cipher negotiation, as demonstrated by a chroot installation of Dovecot or stunnel without Kerberos configuration files inside the chroot.
