MS11-013: Vulnerabilities in Kerberos Could Allow Elevation of Privilege (2496930)

Synopsis :

The remote implementation of Kerberos is affected by one or more

Description :

The implementation of Kerberos on the remote Windows host is affected
by one or more vulnerabilities :

- Microsoft's Kerberos implementation uses a weak hashing
mechanism, which can allow for certain aspects of a
Kerberos service ticket to be forged. Note that this is
not exploitable on domains where the domain controllers
are running Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008
R2. (CVE-2011-0043)

- An attacker can force a downgrade in Kerberos
communication between a client and server to a weaker
encryption standard than negotiated originally by means
of a man-in-the-middle attack because Windows does not
correctly enforce the stronger default encryption
standards included in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008
R2. Note that this issue only affects implementations
of Kerberos on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.

Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows XP, 2003, 7, and
2008 R2.
