Description

CVE-2015-2695

It was discovered that applications which call gss_inquire_context() on a partially-established SPNEGO context can cause the GSS-API library to read from a pointer using the wrong type, leading to a process crash.

CVE-2015-2697

It was discovered that the build_principal_va() function incorrectly handles input strings. An authenticated attacker can take advantage of this flaw to cause a KDC to crash using a TGS request with a large realm field beginning with a null byte.

For the oldoldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in version 1.8.3+dfsg-4squeeze10.

We recommend that you upgrade your krb5 packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
