New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.5


The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.


It was discovered that Kerberos did not properly determine the acceptability of certain checksums. A remote attacker could use certain checksums to alter the prompt message, modify a response to a Key Distribution Center (KDC) or forge a KRB-SAFE message.

It was discovered that Kerberos did not properly determine the acceptability of certain checksums. A remote attacker could use certain checksums to forge GSS tokens or gain privileges. This issue only affected Ubuntu 9.10, 10.04 LTS and 10.10. (CVE-2010-1324)

It was discovered that Kerberos did not reject RC4 key-derivation checksums. An authenticated remote user could use this issue to forge AD-SIGNEDPATH or AD-KDC-ISSUED signatures and possibly gain privileges. This issue only affected Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and 10.10.

It was discovered that Kerberos did not properly restrict the use of TGT credentials for armoring TGS requests. A remote authenticated user could use this flaw to impersonate a client. This issue only affected Ubuntu 9.10. (CVE-2010-4021).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
