Description

A buffer overflow has been discovered in the telnet server from Heimdal, a free implementation of Kerberos 5, that could lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 0.4e-7.woody.10.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in version 0.6.3-10sarge1.
