[ALSA-2021:3576] Moderate: krb5 security update
Release date:
Kerberos is a network authentication system, which can improve the security of your network by eliminating the insecure practice of sending passwords over the network in unencrypted form. It allows clients and servers to authenticate to each other with the help of a trusted third party, the Kerberos key distribution center (KDC). Security Fix(es): * krb5: Sending a request containing PA-ENCRYPTED-CHALLENGE padata element without using FAST could result in NULL dereference in KDC which leads to DoS (CVE-2021-36222) * krb5: NULL pointer dereference in process_tgs_req() in kdc/do_tgs_req.c via a FAST inner body that lacks server field (CVE-2021-37750) For more details about the security issue(s), including the impact, a CVSS score, acknowledgments, and other related information, refer to the CVE page(s) listed in the References section.
