DESCRIPTION:
Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Kerberos, which can be
exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service).

1) A NULL-pointer dereference error in the
"krb5_ldap_get_principal()" function can be exploited to crash the
KDC daemon.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability requires KDC to be
configured to use a LDAP back end (not a default configuration).

This vulnerability is reported in krb5-1.9 and later only.

2) An assertion error in the "krb5_ldap_lockout_audit()" and
"krb5_db2_lockout_audit()" functions can be exploited to crash the
KDC daemon.

3) A NULL-pointer dereference error in the "lookup_lockout_policy()"
function can be exploited to crash the KDC daemon.

Vulnerabilities #2 and #3 are reported in krb5-1.8 and later.

SOLUTION:
Apply patches (fixes are scheduled for the upcoming release of
krb5-1.8.x and krb5-1.9.x).
