Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update incorporates the upstream patch to fix an uninitialized
pointer crash in the KDC's authorization data handling routines
(CVE-2010-1322). It also pulls up a few backports and compilation flag
changes from F15.

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.
