Vendor Statements (disclaimer)

Not vulnerable. Mandriva 2007.0 and earlier ship with Kerberos 5 version 1.4.x and as a result are not vulnerable to these issues.

Official Statement from Red Hat (03/14/2007)

Not vulnerable. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1, 3, and 4 ship with versions of Kerberos 5 prior to version 1.4 and are therefore not affected by these vulnerabilities. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 is not vulnerable to this issue as it contains a backported patch.
