krb5 vulnerabilities

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

– Ubuntu 22.10
– Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
– Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
– Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
– Ubuntu 16.04 ESM
– Ubuntu 14.04 ESM


Several security issues were fixed in Kerberos.

Software Description:
– krb5: MIT Kerberos Network Authentication Protocol


It was discovered that Kerberos incorrectly handled certain S4U2Self
requests. An attacker could possibly use this issue to cause a denial of
service. This issue was only addressed in Ubuntu 16.04 ESM and Ubuntu
18.04 LTS. (CVE-2018-20217)

Greg Hudson discovered that Kerberos PAC implementation incorrectly
handled certain parsing operations. A remote attacker could use this
issue to cause a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code.
