FreeBSD : krb5 -- Vulnerabilities in kadmind, libgssrpc, gss_process_context_token VU#540092 (24ce5597-acab-11e4-a847-206a8a720317)
High Nessus Plugin ID 81175
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.
DescriptionSO-AND-SO reports :
CVE-2014-5352: In the MIT krb5 libgssapi_krb5 library, after gss_process_context_token() is used to process a valid context deletion token, the caller is left with a security context handle containing a dangling pointer. Further uses of this handle will result in use-after-free and double-free memory access violations. libgssrpc server applications such as kadmind are vulnerable as they can be instructed to call gss_process_context_token().
CVE-2014-9421: If the MIT krb5 kadmind daemon receives invalid XDR data from an authenticated user, it may perform use-after-free and double-free memory access violations while cleaning up the partial deserialization results. Other libgssrpc server applications may also be vulnerable if they contain insufficiently defensive XDR functions.
CVE-2014-9422: The MIT krb5 kadmind daemon incorrectly accepts authentications to two-component server principals whose first component is a left substring of 'kadmin' or whose realm is a left prefix of the default realm.
CVE-2014-9423: libgssrpc applications including kadmind output four or eight bytes of uninitialized memory to the network as part of an unused 'handle' field in replies to clients.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
