CVEs ( CVE-2001-1323


Updated Kerberos 5 packages are now available for Red Hat Linux 6.2, 7,
and 7.1. These updates close a potential vulnerability present in the
gssapi-aware ftpd included in the krb5-workstation package.

By use of a carefully-crafted authentication request, a malicious client
could exploit a vulnerability made possible by a missing bounds check. A
malicious client could also overflow the buffer space used by the server
for performing globbing operations.


Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which are
not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note that you
can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains the
desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network. Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:


This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.
