    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in krb5, the MIT implementation
    of Kerberos. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies
    the following problems:
    
    CVE-2014-4341
    
        An unauthenticated remote attacker with the ability to inject
        packets into a legitimately established GSSAPI application session
        can cause a program crash due to invalid memory references when
        attempting to read beyond the end of a buffer.
    
    CVE-2014-4342
    
        An unauthenticated remote attacker with the ability to inject
        packets into a legitimately established GSSAPI application session
        can cause a program crash due to invalid memory references when
        reading beyond the end of a buffer or by causing a null pointer
        dereference.
    
    CVE-2014-4343
    
        An unauthenticated remote attacker with the ability to spoof packets
        appearing to be from a GSSAPI acceptor can cause a double-free
        condition in GSSAPI initiators (clients) which are using the SPNEGO
        mechanism, by returning a different underlying mechanism than was
        proposed by the initiator. A remote attacker could exploit this flaw
        to cause an application crash or potentially execute arbitrary code.
    
    CVE-2014-4344
    
        An unauthenticated or partially authenticated remote attacker can
        cause a NULL dereference and application crash during a SPNEGO
        negotiation by sending an empty token as the second or later context
        token from initiator to acceptor.
    
    CVE-2014-4345
    
        When kadmind is configured to use LDAP for the KDC database, an
        authenticated remote attacker can cause it to perform an
        out-of-bounds write (buffer overflow).
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.10.1+dfsg-5+deb7u2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.12.1+dfsg-7.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your krb5 packages.
