Description Carsten Lohrke (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-05-06 05:18:40 UTC
All releases prior to 0.6.2 have a possible buffer overrun problem in the Kerberos 4 kadmin compatibility module. It would probably be possible to implement a remote exploit for this, depending on architechture.
Comment 1 Thierry Carrez (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-05-06 13:19:03 UTC
C1 type -> major, target delay 5 days
upstream fix available : version 0.6.2
no maintainer

solar : you did the last bump, can you do it again ?
Comment 2 Thierry Carrez (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-05-10 05:07:45 UTC
v0.6.2 in portage, thanks to aliz
arches: please test app-crypt/heimdal-0.6.2 and mark stable
Comment 3 Jason Wever (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-05-10 19:47:08 UTC
Testing here looks good, though fetchmail's configure script cannot find what it needs for kerberos5 support with heimdal-0.6.2.  Not sure if this worked previously or not.
Comment 4 Bryan Ƙstergaard (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-05-11 17:30:23 UTC
Marked stable on alpha.
Comment 5 Guy Martin (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-05-12 15:54:35 UTC
Marked stable on hppa.
Comment 6 Jason Wever (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-05-13 20:02:18 UTC
So do we really care about the fact that fetchmail doesn't work here or not?

Comment 8 Thierry Carrez (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-05-19 12:49:20 UTC
Noone is sure it was working before. I would say "mark stable" so that the GLSA can go out. Then someone can enter the bug in case it's a regression...

arches : please mark stable or refute :)
Comment 9 Jason Wever (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-05-19 15:20:38 UTC
Okey dokey.  This might be a situation to add into the security policy.  Marked stable on sparc.
