    It was discovered that the Key Distribution Center (KDC) in Kerberos 5
    crashes when processing certain crafted requests:
    
    CVE-2011-1528
    	When the LDAP backend is used, remote users can trigger
    	a KDC daemon crash and denial of service.
    
    CVE-2011-1529
    	When the LDAP or Berkeley DB backend is used, remote users
    	can trigger a NULL pointer dereference in the KDC daemon
    	and a denial of service.
    	
    The oldstable distribution (lenny) is not affected by these problems.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed
    in version 1.8.3+dfsg-4squeeze5.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy) and the unstable distribution
    (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 1.10+dfsg~alpha1-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your krb5 packages.
