Package description:

  (MIT) Kerberos is a network authentication protocol. It is designed to
  provide strong authentication for client/server applications by using
  secret-key cryptography.  A free implementation of this protocol is
  available from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Kerberos
  is available in many commercial products as well.

Problem description:

  The MIT Kerberos Development Team has discovered a number of
  vulnerabilities in the MIT Kerberos Version 5 software.  The Common
  Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following


    A double-free error may allow unauthenticated remote attackers to
    execute arbitrary code on KDC or clients.


    Several double-free errors may allow authenticated attackers to
    execute arbitrary code on Kerberos application servers.


    A remotely eploitable denial of service vulnerability has been
    found in the KDC and libraries.


    Several double-free errors may allow remote attackers to execute
    arbitrary code on the server.

  We recommend that all systems with this package installed be upgraded.
  Please note that if you do not need the functionality provided by this
  package, you may want to remove it from your system.
