Recent MIT Kerberos 5 Security Vulnerabilities

The Key Distribution Center (KDC) in MIT Kerberos 5 (aka krb5) before 1.18.5 and 1.19.x before 1.19.3 has a NULL pointer dereference in kdc/do_tgs_req.c via a FAST inner body

The Key Distribution Center (KDC) in MIT Kerberos 5 (aka krb5) before 1.18.5 and 1.19.x before 1.19.3 has a NULL pointer dereference in kdc/do_tgs_req.c via a FAST inner body that lacks a server field.

NULL Pointer Dereference

ec_verify in kdc/kdc_preauth_ec.c in the Key Distribution Center (KDC) in MIT Kerberos 5 (aka krb5) before 1.18.4 and 1.19.x before 1.19.2

CVE-2021-36222 7.5 - High - July 22, 2021

This occurs because a return value is not properly managed in a certain situation.

NULL Pointer Dereference

MIT Kerberos 5 (aka krb5) before 1.17.2 and 1.18.x before 1.18.3

CVE-2020-28196 7.5 - High - November 06, 2020

MIT Kerberos 5 (aka krb5) before 1.17.2 and 1.18.x before 1.18.3 allows unbounded recursion via an ASN.1-encoded Kerberos message because the lib/krb5/asn.1/asn1_encode.c support for BER indefinite lengths lacks a recursion limit.

Stack Exhaustion

A flaw was found in, Fedora versions of krb5

CVE-2019-14844 7.5 - High - September 26, 2019

A flaw was found in, Fedora versions of krb5 from 1.16.1 to, including 1.17.x, in the way a Kerberos client could crash the KDC by sending one of the RFC 4556 "enctypes". A remote unauthenticated user could use this flaw to crash the KDC.

Improper Input Validation

MIT krb5 1.6 or later

CVE-2018-5730 3.8 - Low - March 06, 2018

MIT krb5 1.6 or later allows an authenticated kadmin with permission to add principals to an LDAP Kerberos database to circumvent a DN containership check by supplying both a "linkdn" and "containerdn" database argument, or by supplying a DN string which is a left extension of a container DN string but is not hierarchically within the container DN.
