CVE-2010-4022

New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

The do_standalone function in the MIT krb5 KDC database propagation daemon (kpropd) in Kerberos 1.7, 1.8, and 1.9, when running in standalone mode, does not properly handle when a worker child process "exits abnormally," which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (listening process termination, no new connections, and lack of updates in slave KVC) via unspecified vectors.
