Fedora Core 5 : mod_auth_kerb-5.3-2.fc5 (2006-1341)

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update includes the latest upstream release of mod_auth_kerb,
version 5.3, which includes the fix for a security issue.

An off by one flaw was found in the way mod_auth_kerb handles certain
Kerberos authentication messages. A remote client could send a
specially crafted authentication request which could crash an httpd
child process (CVE-2006-5989).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
