NVD Description

Note: Versions mentioned in the description apply to the upstream krb5 package. See Remediation section below for Debian:9 relevant versions.

The kadm5_randkey_principal_3 function in lib/kadm5/srv/svr_principal.c in kadmind in MIT Kerberos 5 (aka krb5) before 1.13 sends old keys in a response to a -randkey -keepold request, which allows remote authenticated users to forge tickets by leveraging administrative access.

Remediation

Upgrade Debian:9 krb5 to version 1.12.1+dfsg-10 or higher.
