MIT Kerberos krb5-appl privilege escalation
|kerberos-krb5appl-priv-esc (68398)||High Risk|
MIT Kerberos could allow a remote authenticated attacker to gain elevated privileges on the system, caused by the failure to set effective group ID by the krb5-appl FTP daemon. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to gain read or write access to files whose group owner is the initial effective group ID (EGID) of the FTP daemon process.
Refer to MITKRB5-SA-2011-005 for patch, upgrade or suggested workaround information. See References.

- CVE-2011-1526: ftpd.c in the GSS-API FTP daemon in MIT Kerberos Version 5 Applications (aka krb5-appl) 1.0.1 and earlier does not check the krb5_setegid return value, which allows remote authenticated users to bypass intended group access restrictions, and create, overwrite, delete, or read files, via standard FTP commands, related to missing autoconf tests in a configure script.
