The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
This update incorporates patches to fix potential read overflow and
NULL pointer dereferences in the implementation of the SPNEGO GSSAPI
mechanism (CVE-2009-0844, CVE-2009-0845), attempts to free an
uninitialized pointer during protocol parsing (CVE-2009-0846), and a
bug in length validation during protocol parsing (CVE-2009-0847).
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.
