Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2007-2015 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2007-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
The server-side portion of Kerberos' RPC library had a memory
management flaw which allowed users of that library to call a function
pointer located in unallocated memory. By doing specially crafted
calls to the kadmind server, a remote attacker could exploit this to
execute arbitrary code with root privileges on the target computer.
Update the affected packages.
