Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update incorporates the upstream patches to fix CVE-2009-3295, a
remotely- triggerable crash in the KDC. This update also addresses
some packaging bugs, makes changes to the PAM support in ksu, and
backports a change which allows GSSAPI acceptors to store delegated
Kerberos credentials in credential caches when clients use SPNEGO.

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.
