Vendor Statement

Releases of Red Hat Linux version 6.2 and higher include versions of MIT Kerberos that are vulnerable to this issue; however the vulnerable administration server, kadmind4, has never been enabled by default. We are currently working on producing errata packages. When complete these will be available along with our advisory at the URL below. At the same time users of the Red Hat Network will be able to update their systems using the 'up2date' tool.
