The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
It was found that kadmind's kpasswd service did not perform any
validation on incoming network packets, causing it to reply to all
requests. A remote attacker could use this flaw to send spoofed
packets to a kpasswd service that appear to come from kadmind on a
different server, causing the services to keep replying packets to
each other, consuming network bandwidth and CPU. (CVE-2002-2443)
After installing the updated packages, the krb5kdc and kadmind daemons
will be restarted automatically.
