 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2012:111
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : krb5
 Date    : August 1, 2012
 Affected: 2011., Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in krb5:
 
 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).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
