DSA 178-1-New Heimdal packages fix remote command execution

by Nikola Strahija on October 17th, 2002 The SuSE Security Team has reviewed critical parts of the Heimdal package such as the kadmind and kdc server. While doing so several potential buffer overflows and other bugs have been uncovered and fixed. Remote attackers can probably gain remote root access on systems without fixes. Since these services usually run on authentication servers these bugs are considered very serious.

These problems have been fixed in version 0.4e-7.woody.4 for the
current stable distribution (woody), in version 0.2l-7.4 for the old
stable distribution (potato) and version 0.4e-21 for the unstable
distribution (sid).

We recommend that you upgrade your Heimdal packages immediately.

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
