Re: Multiple MIT Kerberos Vulnerabilities (2008-B-0024)

Any update on this issue?

I am told to do the following on my servers:

Outdated MIT KERBEROS 5 /usr/lib/hpux32/ version 1.3.5 found. Please
upgrade to MIT KERBEROS 5 version 1.6.1 or later.

Does someone have the experience to share?

Are you asking about the HP-UX Kerberos Client or Kerberos Server? The Kerberos Server is not MIT - so CVE-2008-0062 and CVE-2008-0063 do not apply. For CVE-2008-0947 we will have client update on a web release in July or August. This update will not be 1.7, however.
