Title: Heimdal: Kerberos 4 buffer overflow in kadmin
Date: May 27, 2004
Bugs: #50208
ID: 200405-23

Synopsis
========

A possible buffer overflow in the Kerberos 4 component of Heimdal has
been discovered.

Background
==========

Heimdal is a free implementation of Kerberos.

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

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 app-crypt/heimdal < 0.6.2 >= 0.6.2

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

A buffer overflow was discovered in kadmind, a server for
administrative access to the Kerberos database.

Impact
======

By sending a specially formatted message to kadmind, a remote attacker
may be able to crash kadmind causing a denial of service, or execute
arbitrary code with the permissions of the kadmind process.

Workaround
==========

For a temporary workaround, providing you do not require Kerberos 4
support, you may turn off Kerberos 4 kadmin by running kadmind with the
--no-kerberos4 option.

Resolution
==========

All Heimdal users should upgrade to the latest stable version:

# emerge sync

# emerge -pv ">=app-crypt/heimdal-0.6.2"
# emerge ">=app-crypt/heimdal-0.6.2"
