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's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 6.7
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201201-13 (MIT Kerberos 5: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in MIT Kerberos 5. Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
A remote attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the administration daemon or the Key Distribution Center (KDC) daemon, cause a Denial of Service condition, or possibly obtain sensitive information. Furthermore, a remote attacker may be able to spoof Kerberos authorization, modify KDC responses, forge user data messages, forge tokens, forge signatures, impersonate a client, modify user-visible prompt text, or have other unspecified impact.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll MIT Kerberos 5 users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=app-crypt/mit-krb5-1.9.2-r1'
