                   Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Updated krb5 packages fix security vulnerabilities
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2004:448-01
Issue date:        2004-08-31
Updated on:        2004-08-31
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Keywords:          krb5 double-free asn.1
Obsoletes:         RHSA-2004:236
CVE Names:         CAN-2004-0642 CAN-2004-0643 CAN-2004-0644
- ---------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary:

Updated Kerberos (krb5) packages that correct double-free and ASN.1
parsing bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (Advanced Server) version 2.1 - i386, ia64
Red Hat Linux Advanced Workstation 2.1 - ia64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 2.1 - i386
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 2.1 - i386

3. Problem description:

Kerberos is a networked authentication system that uses a trusted third
party (a KDC) to authenticate clients and servers to each other.

Several double-free bugs were found in the Kerberos 5 KDC and libraries.  A
remote attacker could potentially exploit these flaws to execute arbitrary
code.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the names CAN-2004-0642 and CAN-2004-0643 to these issues.

A double-free bug was also found in the krb524 server (CAN-2004-0772),
however this issue was fixed for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 users by a
previous erratum, RHSA-2003:052.

An infinite loop bug was found in the Kerberos 5 ASN.1 decoder library.  A
remote attacker may be able to trigger this flaw and cause a denial of
service. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
has assigned the name CAN-2004-0644 to this issue.

All users of krb5 should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported security patches to resolve these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.  Use Red Hat
Network to download and update your packages.  To launch the Red Hat
Update Agent, use the following command:

    up2date

For information on how to install packages manually, refer to the
following Web page for the System Administration or Customization
guide specific to your system:

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/ for more info):

129680 - Upgrading to krb5-libs 1.2.2-27 can cause undefined symbol __dn_expand
