The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
A vulnerability was discovered and corrected in krb5 :
An unauthenticated remote attacker could alter a SAM-2 challenge,
affecting the prompt text seen by the user or the kind of response
sent to the KDC. Under some circumstances, this can negate the
incremental security benefit of using a single-use authentication
mechanism token. An unauthenticated remote attacker has a 1/256 chance
of forging KRB-SAFE messages in an application protocol if the
targeted pre-existing session uses an RC4 session key. Few application
protocols use KRB-SAFE messages (CVE-2010-1323).
