Description

Updated Kerberos 5 packages are now available for Red Hat Linux 6.2, 7, and 7.1. These updates close vulnerabilities due to potential buffer overflows in the Kerberos-aware telnet server included in the krb5-workstation package.

By exploiting buffer overflows in the telnet server included in the krb5-workstation package, a remote attacker can obtain superuser privileges on a vulnerable host.

Solution(s)

  • redhat-upgrade-krb5-configs
  • redhat-upgrade-krb5-devel
  • redhat-upgrade-krb5-libs
  • redhat-upgrade-krb5-server
  • redhat-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.
