Microsoft Information for VU#759265

Kerberos client code buffer overflow in kdc_reply_cipher()


Not Affected

Vendor Statement

Windows 2000 does not support Kerb IV. W2K has completely different implementation of the protocol and is not vulnerable to the specific buffer overflow condition using memcpy identified by VU#759265. (Note that buffer overrun as a general implementation problem is one we are continuously on guard against through our buffer overrun examination tools, internal code reviews, and in the case of kerberos implementation, an external security code review).
