Fedora 12 : krb5-1.7.1-2.fc12 (2010-1722)

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update adds the upstream patch to avoid a potential denial of
service in the KDC in versions 1.7 and later (CVE-2010-0283). It
obsoletes a previous pending update to version 1.7.1, which
incorporates a fix to avoid accidentally tripping account lockout
logic on AD servers when the user types in the wrong password.

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.
