- Ubuntu 14.04 ESM

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in Heimdal.

Software Description:
- heimdal: Heimdal Kerberos Network Authentication Protocol

Details:

It was discovered that Heimdal incorrectly handled certain SPNEGO tokens. A
remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause a denial of service.
(CVE-2021-44758)

Evgeny Legerov discovered that Heimdal incorrectly handled memory when
performing certain DES decryption operations. A remote attacker could use
this issue to cause a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary
code. (CVE-2022-3437)

Greg Hudson discovered that Kerberos PAC implementation used in Heimdal
incorrectly handled certain parsing operations. A remote attacker could use
this issue to cause a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary
code. (CVE-2022-42898)

It was discovered that Heimdal's KDC did not properly handle certain error
conditions. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause a denial of
service, or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2022-44640)
