|Bugzilla:||914749: CVE-2013-1415 krb5: PKINIT null pointer deref leads to DoS (pkinit_check_kdc_pkid())|
The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:
The pkinit_check_kdc_pkid function in plugins/preauth/pkinit/pkinit_crypto_openssl.c in the PKINIT implementation in the Key Distribution Center (KDC) in MIT Kerberos 5 (aka krb5) before 1.10.4 and 1.11.x before 1.11.1 does not properly handle errors during extraction of fields from an X.509 certificate, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and daemon crash) via a malformed KRB5_PADATA_PK_AS_REQ AS-REQ request.
This issue did not affect the versions of krb5 as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 as they did not include support for PKINIT.
