Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2010-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2010-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related
USN-940-1 fixed vulnerabilities in Kerberos. This update provides the
corresponding updates for Ubuntu 10.04.
Joel Johnson, Brian Almeida, and Shawn Emery discovered that Kerberos
did not correctly verify certain packet structures. An unauthenticated
remote attacker could send specially crafted traffic to cause the KDC
or kadmind services to crash, leading to a denial of service.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
Update the affected packages.
