<p>A suite of applications that implement the Kerberos 5 network protocol
from MIT.
<p>Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in MIT Kerberos 5
<li>An error in the FTP daemon prevents it from dropping its initial
effective group identifier (CVE-2011-1526).
<li>A boundary error in the telnet daemon and client could cause a buffer
overflow (CVE-2011-4862).
<impact type="normal">
<p>An unauthenticated remote attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code
with the privileges of the user running the telnet daemon or client.
Furthermore, an authenticated remote attacker may be able to read or
write files owned by the same group as the effective group of the FTP
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
