Vendor References



We have confirmed with the vendor that very early versions of Debian shipped a Telnet client vulnerable to this issue. However, more recent and the current builds of Debian are not affected. However note, the Debian krb5 implementation includes a telnet client as well which is vulnerable. This will be fixed with an update. Version 1.2.4-5woody8 has the corrections to both CAN-2005-0468 and CAN-2005-0469.
