Description John Helmert III archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2023-11-17 04:12:10 UTC
CVE-2023-36054 (

lib/kadm5/kadm_rpc_xdr.c in MIT Kerberos 5 (aka krb5) before 1.20.2 and 1.21.x before 1.21.1 frees an uninitialized pointer. A remote authenticated user can trigger a kadmind crash. This occurs because _xdr_kadm5_principal_ent_rec does not validate the relationship between n_key_data and the key_data array count.

Patch seems to be:

Also noted in 1.20.2 and 1.21.1 release notes:

"* Fix read overruns in SPNEGO parsing (already included in 1.21)."

Looks like we never had any vulnerable 1.21. Need to stabilize fixed
