GLSA: krb5

by Nikola Strahija on October 28th, 2002 A stack buffer overflow in the implementation of the Kerberos v4 compatibility administration daemon (kadmind4) in the MIT krb5 distribution can be exploited to gain unauthorized root access to a KDC host. The attacker does not need to authenticate to the daemon to successfully perform this attack. At least one exploit is known to exist in the wild, and at least one attacker is reasonably competent at cleaning up traces of intrusion.
