To elaborate: as far as I can tell this is "only" a DoS. Trivial to exploit:
just send an AS-REQ with no cname field (how to make such a packet is left
as an exercise). Can be over UDP.

I'm not sure the shodan user who did this to one of my KDCs that day knew
when (s)he was doing. Haven't had any further problems since I applied that
