Description

Jeff Blaine, Radoslav Bodo, Jakob Haufe, and Jorgen Wahlsten discovered that the Kerberos Key Distribution Center service did not correctly verify certain network traffic. An unauthenticated remote attacker could send a specially crafted request that would cause the KDC to crash, leading to a denial of service.
