Problem description

Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in krb5:

Fix a kadmind denial of service issue (null pointer dereference),
which could only be triggered by an administrator with the create
privilege (CVE-2012-1013).

The MIT krb5 KDC (Key Distribution Center) daemon can free an
uninitialized pointer while processing an unusual AS-REQ, corrupting
the process heap and possibly causing the daemon to abnormally
terminate. An attacker could use this vulnerability to execute
malicious code, but exploiting frees of uninitialized pointers to
execute code is believed to be difficult. It is possible that a
legitimate client that is misconfigured in an unusual way could
trigger this vulnerability (CVE-2012-1015).

It was reported that the KDC plugin for PKINIT could dereference a
NULL pointer when a malformed packet caused processing to terminate
early, which led to a crash of the KDC process. An attacker would
require a valid PKINIT certificate or have observed a successful
PKINIT authentication to execute a successful attack. In addition,
an unauthenticated attacker could execute the attack of anonymouse
PKINIT was enabled (CVE-2013-1415).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
