Vulnerability Summary for CVE-2010-1321

Original release date: 05/19/2010
Last revised: 11/13/2014


The kg_accept_krb5 function in krb5/accept_sec_context.c in the GSS-API library in MIT Kerberos 5 (aka krb5) through 1.7.1 and 1.8 before 1.8.2, as used in kadmind and other applications, does not properly check for invalid GSS-API tokens, which allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and daemon crash) via an AP-REQ message in which the authenticator's checksum field is missing.


Per: http://cwe.mitre.org/data/definitions/476.html 'CWE-476: NULL Pointer Dereference'


CVSS Severity (version 2.0):
CVSS v2 Base Score: 6.8 (MEDIUM) (AV:N/AC:L/Au:S/C:N/I:N/A:C) (legend)
Impact Subscore: 6.9
Exploitability Subscore: 8.0
CVSS Version 2 Metrics:
Access Vector: Network exploitable
Access Complexity: Low
Authentication: Required to exploit
Impact Type: Allows disruption of service
Per: http://web.mit.edu/kerberos/advisories/MITKRB5-SA-2010-005.txt 'AFFECTED SOFTWARE ================= * kadmind and other GSS-API server applications in all known releases of MIT krb5, up to and including krb5-1.8.1 * third-party GSS-API server applications that link link against the GSS-API library in all known releases of MIT krb5, up to and including krb5-1.8.1 * Independent implementations of the krb5 GSS-API mechanism may be vulnerable, as the underlying bug is based on plausible (but invalid) assumptions about the Kerberos protocol.'
