Description

The acc_ctx_cont function in the SPNEGO acceptor in lib/gssapi/spnego/spnego_mech.c in MIT Kerberos 5 (aka krb5) 1.5.x through 1.12.x before 1.12.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash) via an empty continuation token at a certain point during a SPNEGO negotiation.

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.
