Synopsis
========

Buffer overflow vulnerabilities have been found in the telnet client in
Heimdal which could lead to execution of arbitrary code.

Background
==========

Heimdal is a free implementation of Kerberos 5 that includes a telnet
client program.

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

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 app-crypt/heimdal < 0.6.4 >= 0.6.4

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

Buffer overflow vulnerabilities in the slc_add_reply() and
env_opt_add() functions have been discovered by Gael Delalleau in the
telnet client in Heimdal.

Impact
======

Successful exploitation would require a vulnerable user to connect to
an attacker-controlled host using the telnet client, potentially
executing arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running the
application.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All Heimdal users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-crypt/heimdal-0.6.4"
