Synopsis
=======
Multiple vulnerabilities in MIT Kerberos 5 could potentially result in
remote code execution with root privileges by unauthenticated users.

Background
=========
MIT Kerberos 5 is a suite of applications that implement the Kerberos
network protocol.

Affected packages
================
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package             /  Vulnerable  /                   Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  app-crypt/mit-krb5     < 1.5.2-r3                     >= 1.5.2-r3

Description
==========
kadmind is affected by multiple vulnerabilities in the RPC library
shipped with MIT Kerberos 5. It fails to properly handle zero-length
RPC credentials (CVE-2007-2442) and the RPC library can write past the
end of the stack buffer (CVE-2007-2443). Furthermore kadmind fails to
do proper bounds checking (CVE-2007-2798).

Impact
=====
A remote unauthenticated attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities
to execute arbitrary code with root privileges.

Workaround
=========
There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
=========
All MIT Kerberos 5 users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-crypt/mit-krb5-1.5.2-r3"
