Detail

Russ Allbery pam-krb5 before 3.13, as used by libpam-heimdal, su in Solaris 10, and other software, does not properly handle calls to pam_setcred when running setuid, which allows local users to overwrite and change the ownership of arbitrary files by setting the KRB5CCNAME environment variable, and then launching a setuid application that performs certain pam_setcred operations.

Title: DSA-1722-1 libpam-heimdal -- programming error
Description: Derek Chan discovered that the PAM module for the Heimdal Kerberos implementation allows reinitialisation of user credentials when run from a setuid context, resulting in potential local denial of service by overwriting the credential cache file or to local privilege escalation. For the stable distribution, this problem has been fixed in version 2.5-1etch1. For the upcoming stable distribution, this problem has been fixed in version 3.10-2.1. For the unstable distribution, this problem will be fixed soon. We recommend that you upgrade your libpam-heimdal package.

Title: DSA-1721-1 libpam-krb5 -- several
Description: Several local vulnerabilities have been discovered in the PAM module for MIT Kerberos. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems: CVE-2009-0360 Russ Allbery discovered that the Kerberos PAM module parsed configuration settings from enviromnent variables when run from a setuid context. This could lead to local privilege escalation if an attacker points a setuid program using PAM authentication to a Kerberos setup under her control. CVE-2009-0361 Derek Chan discovered that the Kerberos PAM module allows reinitialisation of user credentials when run from a setuid context, resulting in potential local denial of service by overwriting the credential cache file or to privilege escalation. For the stable distribution, these problems have been fixed in version 2.6-1etch1. For the upcoming stable distribution, these problems have been fixed in version 3.11-4. For the unstable distribution, these problems will be fixed soon. We recommend that you upgrade your libpam-krb5 package.

Title: USN-719-1 -- libpam-krb5 vulnerabilities
Description: It was discovered that pam_krb5 parsed environment variables when run with setuid applications. A local attacker could exploit this flaw to bypass authentication checks and gain root privileges. Derek Chan discovered that pam_krb5 incorrectly handled refreshing existing credentials when used with setuid applications. A local attacker could exploit this to create or overwrite arbitrary files, and possibly gain root privileges
