Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

Clients sending negotiation requests with invalid flags could crash
the kerberos server (CVE-2009-0845).

GSS-API clients could crash when reading from an invalid address space

Invalid length checks could crash applications using the kerberos
ASN.1 parser (CVE-2009-0847).

Under certain circumstances the ASN.1 parser could free an
uninitialized pointer which could crash a kerberos server or even lead
to execution of arbitrary code (CVE-2009-0846).
