Gentoo Linux Security Advisory GLSA 200707-11 - kadmind is affected by multiple vulnerabilities in the RPC library shipped with MIT Kerberos 5. It fails to properly handle zero-length RPC credentials (CVE-2007-2442) and the RPC library can write past the end of the stack buffer (CVE-2007-2443). Furthermore kadmind fails to do proper bounds checking (CVE-2007-2798). Versions less than 1.5.2-r3 are affected.

Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities in MIT Kerberos 5 could potentially result in
remote code execution with root privileges by unauthenticated users.

Background
==========

MIT Kerberos 5 is a suite of applications that implement the Kerberos
network protocol.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 app-crypt/mit-krb5 < 1.5.2-r3 >= 1.5.2-r3

Description
===========

kadmind is affected by multiple vulnerabilities in the RPC library
shipped with MIT Kerberos 5. It fails to properly handle zero-length
RPC credentials (CVE-2007-2442) and the RPC library can write past the
end of the stack buffer (CVE-2007-2443). Furthermore kadmind fails to
do proper bounds checking (CVE-2007-2798).

Impact
======

A remote unauthenticated attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities
to execute arbitrary code with root privileges.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All MIT Kerberos 5 users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-crypt/mit-krb5-1.5.2-r3"
