    Emmanuel Bouillon from NCI Agency discovered multiple vulnerabilities in MIT
    Kerberos, a daemon implementing the network authentication protocol.
    
    CVE-2012-1014
    
    	By sending specially crafted AS-REQ (Authentication Service Request) to a KDC
    	(Key Distribution Center), an attacker could make it free an uninitialized
    	pointer, corrupting the heap.  This can lead to process crash or even arbitrary
    	code execution.
    	.
    	This CVE only affects testing (wheezy) and unstable (sid) distributions.
    
    CVE-2012-1015
    
    	By sending specially crafted AS-REQ to a KDC, an attacker could make it
    	dereference an uninitialized pointer, leading to process crash or even
    	arbitrary code execution
    
    In both cases, arbitrary code execution is believed to be difficult to achieve,
    but might not be impossible.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.8.3+dfsg-4squeeze6.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.10.1+dfsg-2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.10.1+dfsg-2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your krb5 packages.
