Arch Linux Security Advisory ASA-202004-5
Date : 2020-04-01
CVE-ID : CVE-2020-10595
Package : pam-krb5
Type : arbitrary code execution
Remote : Yes
Link : https://security.archlinux.org/AVG-1119
The package pam-krb5 before version 4.9-1 is vulnerable to arbitrary
Upgrade to 4.9-1.
# pacman -Syu "pam-krb5>=4.9-1"
The problem has been fixed upstream in version 4.9.
pam-krb5 before 4.9 has a buffer overflow that might cause remote code
execution in situations involving supplemental prompting by a Kerberos
library. It may overflow a buffer provided by the underlying Kerberos
library by a single '\0' byte if an attacker responds to a prompt with
an answer of a carefully chosen length. The effect may range from heap
corruption to stack corruption depending on the structure of the
underlying Kerberos library, with unknown effects but possibly
including code execution.
This code path is not used for normal authentication, but only when the
Kerberos library does supplemental prompting, such as with PKINIT or
when using the non-standard no_prompt PAM configuration option.
A remote attacker is able to execute arbitrary code on the affected
