Description

MIT Kerberos 5 (aka krb5) 1.3.x, 1.4.x, 1.5.x, 1.6.x, 1.7.x, and 1.8.x through 1.8.3 does not properly determine the acceptability of checksums, which might allow remote attackers to modify user-visible prompt text, modify a response to a Key Distribution Center (KDC), or forge a KRB-SAFE message via certain checksums that (1) are unkeyed or (2) use RC4 keys.

Solution(s)

  • oracle-linux-upgrade-krb5-devel
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-krb5-libs
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-krb5-server
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-krb5-workstation

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.
