Description

Updated krb5 packages that fix multiple security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in the References section.

Kerberos is a network authentication system which allows clients and servers to authenticate to each other using symmetric encryption and a trusted third party, the Key Distribution Center (KDC).

Multiple checksum validation flaws were discovered in the MIT Kerberos implementation. A remote attacker could use these flaws to tamper with certain Kerberos protocol packets and, possibly, bypass authentication mechanisms in certain configurations using Single-use Authentication Mechanisms. (CVE-2010-1323)

Red Hat would like to thank the MIT Kerberos Team for reporting these issues.

All krb5 users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to correct these issues. After installing the updated packages, the krb5kdc daemon will be restarted automatically.
