RHSA-2014:1255: krb5 security update (Moderate)
Kerberos is an authentication system which allows clients and services to authenticate to each other with the help of a trusted third party a Kerberos Key Distribution Center (KDC). A buffer overflow was found in the KADM5 administration server (kadmind) when it was used with an LDAP back end for the KDC database. A remote authenticated attacker could potentially use this flaw to execute arbitrary code on the system running kadmind. (CVE-2014-4345) All krb5 users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages which contain a backported patch to correct this issue. After installing the updated packages the krb5kdc and kadmind daemons will be restarted automatically.
