Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : krb5 (MDKSA-2005:061)

High Nessus Plugin ID 17658


The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


Two buffer overflow issues were discovered in the way telnet clients handle messages from a server. Because of these issues, an attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code on the victim's machine if the victim can be tricked into connecting to a malicious telnet server.
The Kerberos package contains a telnet client and is patched to deal with these issues.


Update the affected packages.
